Challenger Breadware has introduced a new innovation to the market with the launch of a new bench knife, designed to help bakers deal with delicate dough.
The handcrafted Challenger Bench Knife provides capacity and comfort and is targeted towards chefs at small bakeries and restaurants around the world.
The new product’s nonstick blade measures 4″ x 8″ (10cm x 20cm), larger than most bench knives and dough scrapers on the market.
The blade allows bakers to scale and separate their dough with ease. It can also be used to slide dough into bannetons.
“The large blade provides the necessary capacity, and the comfortable Live Oak handle makes working with dough easier because it feels like a natural extension of the baker’s hand,” said Jim Challenger, baker, founder, and president of Challenger Breadware. “We spent countless hours designing the Challenger Bench Knife, and I’m confident bread bakers around the globe, from weekend hobbyists to expert bakers, will find the new bench knife extremely useful.”
Jim Challenger, a serial entrepreneur and avid sourdough bread baker, invented the Challenger Bench Knife after years of frustration of not having the right tool in his kitchen.
The Challenger Bench Knife was made in collaboration with the producer of Campbell’s Dough Knife, and the Live Oak handles are handcrafted by Aaron Lucas, an artisanal wood craftsman in Charleston, South Carolina.
The Challenger Bench Knife is available worldwide immediately for order at www.challengerbreadware.com at a price of $75 plus shipping.
