I've held off buying this product for years. I said to myself: How good can it be? What a mistake. This knife blew me away. It cuts all kinds of bread perfectly, from my wife's homemade paska to store bought challah and kaiser rolls. What a pleasure to use. And it's not just for bread. My wife buys these vine ripened tomatoes at the supermarket. One of them in the refrig was quite soft and I wanted to slice it for my sandwich. The knife went through it like butter cutting perfect slices. Reward yourself; get this incredible knife.
