Bread Knives

Bread Knife

Long, moderately rigid, and up wardly canted with a wave-cut edge, this bread-knife blade is well equipped to slice across a large loaf in one stroke, to contend with the density of a dark rye or the airiness of a brioche. Bread knives with finely serrated blades work on the same principle as the wave-cut edge: They bite rather than slice into a hard crust, then quickly rip through the loaf's softer interior without compressing it.

Bread Knife

Bread-knife blades range in length from 8 to 10 inches; all are bluntly tipped and are available in either stainless or high-carbon stainless steel. This is one of the few basic blades that, because of what it cuts, needn't have a full tang, A bread knife with a 10-inch-long blade which can also be used to slice a torte horizontally for later layering or to remove the sugar bloom from a baked sponge cake is recommended for household use.

Serrated Bread Knife

A serrated bread knife is a must for cutting everything from New York bagels to baguettes, and it can also do the job when your regular knives are not as sharp as they should be, when it comes to slicing tomatoes or lemons, peeling pineapples and melons, cutting cured sausage or breaded chicken breast, or dividing anything that is hard on the outside but softer in the middle. The serrated edge of the knife is able to cut into the hard exterior without squashing the inside.

The teeth of the bread knives vary quite a bit and it is difficult to tell how well it might perform just by looking at it. Generally, knives with pointed teeth and recessed scallops are able to penetrate tougher artisan breads better, but they are more likely to tear into the softer interior of the bread. Wavy serrations are more gentle on tender breads and give a cleaner cut with fewer crumbs. They are ideal for slicing focaccia, Italian bread, or pastries, or for cutting a cake.

No matter the serrations, the perfect bread knife should have a long, stiff blade and a handle that is not aligned with the blade. A blade around 8 inches is suitable for slicing a baguette or a sandwich bread, however it might be too short for larger boules. A knife with a 9 or 10 inch blade is a better choice. It is significant that the blade is rigid, because if it is pliable it can skid leading to cut slices that are not consistent, particularly with denser bread. Furthermore, an offset handle allows you to cut through the bottom crust without hurting your knuckles; unfortunately, most bread knives don't possess this advantageous feature. You do not need to spend a lot of money on a bread knife, though be mindful that a few of the less expensive ones may be too flexible or have serrations that are not useful. It is suggested to try using it before acquiring it.
