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.
This is a great knife for slicing through crusty artisan loaves and all kinds of breads, but also very useful for slicing tomatoes and other thin-skinned fruit. It works well in slicing semi-frozen meat and poultry, and making thin slices of meat. It is indispensible in my kitchen, and I bring it, along with my chef's knives, when I travel where I'll be cooking.
