A bread knife is particularly devised for cutting bread. It features a jagged long blade, which is good for cutting a loaf of bread as well as sandwiched and baguette.

With ordinary knives, you can’t insert the blade smoothly, and end up squashing bread and spoiling its flavor or texture. Bread knives can cut bread as saws cut trees without putting much pressure on bread. This way of cutting can maintain bread’s flavor and texture.

How to Choose a Bread Knife

There are several types of bread knife, and choosing an appropriate one is the very first important step to make your meals wonderful.

Materials

Most are made of stainless steel, but some are made of ceramics. The advantage of stainless steel is rust resistance and blade durability, and that of ceramics is light weight and rust proofness.

Shape of blade

Some have a jagged blade and others have a flat blade like ordinary knives. Jagged blades can cut various kinds of bread. Flat blades are good for cutting soft breads properly.
