American Angler's Delta Series is their most popular collection of knives, with the 10" Slicer being on of their more popular models. This 10” serrated blade knife is made of high carbon, German stainless steel that is strong and durable. The serrated blade style is ideal for uses when you need to really grip in and saw through the object being cut. A serrated blade has a cutting edge that has many small points of contact with the material being cut. By having less contact area than a smooth blade, the applied pressure at each point of contact is relatively greater and the points of contact are at a sharper angle to the material being cut. This causes a cutting action that involves many small splits in the surface of the material being cut, which cumulatively serve to cut the material along the line of the blade.
