There are different types of bread knives and some have long blades, whereas others have shorter blades. In contrast with a chef?s knife, the most important part of a bread knife is that it reaches to cut through the entire bread.
In comparison with most other knives, the bread knife has a jagged edge in order for it to be able to cut through porous materials without squashing them. That also makes the bread knife perfect for other food products that are more porous, such as tomatoes and cakes for example. The bread knife is within its specific area of knives a must-have for every kitchen owner, and it fulfills its duty as a bread slicer well.
