Rated 5 out of 5 by Andedm from Cuts Bread like Butter! This knife extremely sharp. It slices through hard crust bread so effortlessly, it surprised me the first time I used it. It's well balanced and the handle is beautiful. Just be careful cleaning it, I sliced my finger drying the blade immediately after use! I have only had this knife for a month, so hopefully it keeps its nice blade.Date published: 2016-12-22
