Rated 2 out of 5 by Ryan from Good on paper, bad experience with knife I received this knife as a gift and was rather excited to have a potentially decent serrated knife. However after my first use with this knife, I was already experiencing chipping and having the edge roll to one side. This could have been a manufacturing defect due to not polishing the knife after production or the fact that it’s a single bevel serrated edge but as someone who works in a professional kitchen, I can’t risk using a knife like this on a daily basis when after it’s first use it’s having these issues, especially when all I was cutting was baguettes.Date published: 2018-12-30Rated 5 out of 5 by Barbiegirl113 from Best knife for slicing artisan breads,etc. I have 2 other top brand knives for slicing bread. This is the BEST ever! My husband can't believe how easily it slices all types of bread.Date published: 2015-04-07Rated 5 out of 5 by SpareTimeChefWannaBe from The Ultimate Bread & Sandwich Knife This deli knife cuts through all bread and sandwiches without squishing them. It is incredible! No matter the softness inside, the knife grabs and smoothly glides down effortlessly. Love it! Threw away my bread knife.Date published: 2015-03-07Rated 5 out of 5 by Aujourdhui from This knife spoiled me I bought this knife because of the brand and the shape of the knife. I had no idea how incredible this knife would be. It cuts through vegetables with ease. It makes it fun to chop. Tomatoes are a breeze to slice. I also bought the Panini Spatula which when used with this knife, keeps the sandwich from being pressed down with your hand. I gathered up three other knifes that I had in my drawer and will be donating them. Until I got this knife, I thought my others were good. You will never go back to an average knife again. I know I won't.Date published: 2014-03-07Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandmaofseven from Wonderful knife We are never disappointed with Wusthof knives.
