Idyllic breakfasts, lazy afternoons, fresh bread, and... A bread knife! One of the most popular types of knife, which everyone can easily recognize and use. It is distinguished by its 6 to 10 inches rectangular blade, finished with serrations. Why is it so special? First of all, because if used well, it allows to precisely cut bread, crispy crust, or delicate bread rolls without crushing them, leaving no jagged edges and unsightly, uneven slices. What’s more, such a knife is also ideal for cutting tomatoes, cakes or pies. The secret for using such a knife correctly lies in straight, sliding motions.
