The Hebrew blessing over bread, known as the Hamotzi, adorns the handle in raised lettering, as well as a modern elaboration in English: "You are the God of grace, love and compassion, the source of bread for all who live - for Your love is everlasting. In your great goodness we need never lack for food. You provide food enough for all. For all this we thank You."
Sheffled stainless steel blade with cast pewter handle. Most of all the handle fits comfortably in the hand.
