Bread knife

I love the knife, it is by far the best bread knife I've ever owned. Beautifully made too. My only criticism is that the only scabbard available to buy is a leather one - please offer a vegan friendly alternative! I also had a very frustrating time with DPD Local delivery, so maybe worth trying another courier? I saw in other reviews that other people had problems too.

Best bread knife ever

This Bread knife is excellent. Highly recommend and will be telling anyone who cares to listen.

Beautiful and functional

This is my second Katto knife and I’m pleased to report that it’s as beautiful as anticipated. It’s well weighted and the quality is incredible. Would love to see a boning knife added to the range.


This knife is sensational. It is part of my daily kitchen use.
I can use it all day and have no discomfort. It’s sharp, comfortable and looks amazing
