Bread KnivesIf you’ve ever tried to cut a soft, freshly baked loaf of bread with a straight edge knife and ended up with a mushy mess, then you already know the importance of a proper serrated bread knife. Give yourself peace of mind and get the right tool for the job.

Bread knives aren’t just for breads; they do triple duty on tomatoes, vegetables, breaking up chocolate for baking and even angel food cake. If you’re enthusiastic about baking, a 10-inch knife is in order, just to cover all your needs. Otherwise an 8- or 9-inch knife will do.

For quality and edge retention, look for a serrated knife that’s made of high-carbon stainless steel. As with a chef’s knife, the weight between the blade and the handle should be well balanced, and the handle should feel comfortable.
