Wusthof Classic Serrated Bread Knife : The perfect all-around bread knife cuts smoothly through everything from slender, crusty baguettes to softer sandwich breads. The serrated edge also makes it terrific for slicing tomatoes. For large, round artisan breads, the blade gives you the length and control you need. The serrated edge penetrates heavy crusts without tearing the softer interior. About Wusthof Classic: Precision-forged blades of Wusthof's own high-carbon, stain-resistant steel alloy, for a lasting edge that is easy to resharpen. Distinctive bolster prevents your hand from slipping onto the blade. Handle is a virtually indestructible composite, buffed by hand for a smooth finish and triple-riveted to the full tang for optimum strength and balance. Dishwasher safe, but hand-washing is recommended. Made in Solingen, Germany.
When I'm in the Kitchen, I become: Cooking Enthusiast
I love this bread knife. I first bought it when I lived in Europe in the mid-80's. It is wonderful for cutting all kinds of bread. I bought a second home recently and found I really missed my knife when I forgot to bring it. Now I have one at each house. My original knife is still in great shape. I wash it by hand and seldom sharpen it, but it still performs like new. It is comfortable to hold and the right length for most breads I cut. I fully expect the new one to be just as well used and long lasting.
