Popularly used for commercial and industrial food applications, the SLIK12 is a 12 inch knife used for easily cutting through food ingredients like bread and meat. The serrated edge maintains its sharpness for much longer than a smooth blade, and ensures that slices are consistently made with clean edges. The durable plastic handle provides ample grip for the user (even when wet) and can be easily cleaned to prevent the growth of bacteria. Each knife is wrapped in an individual protective sheath for safe handling and storage, but their standard shapes blades mean they can also be kept in a knife block or rack. The handles can be colour coded in a variety of industry standard colours to help identify the knife's intended food type, thus reducing the risk of cross-contamination.
