The Wüsthof Classic Ikon bread knife slices through bread or baguettes with minimal crumbs and without compressing the soft inside. The serrations of the double serrated knife form dozens of small individual cutting edges that allow the knife to cut cleanly in either direction without the use of excessive pressure. The 8" 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, the bread knife is also 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!
