A good bread knife is one of the key items in every kitchen. Slice through bread or baguettes with minimal crumbs. On the double serrated knife, there are dozens of small individual cutting edges that allow the knife to cut cleanly in either direction without the use of excessive pressure. The offset bread knife features a handle with good clearance between the knuckles and the cutting board while slicing baguettes or cutting sandwiches.
In addition to slicing bread, a bread knives are great for cutting watermelon and even tomatoes and other tough skinned but soft fleshed vegetables and fruits. Remember to use it in long strokes to best take advantage of its length. A kitchen essential!
