Not everyone finds the bread knife an integral part of their home collection. For absolutely no purpose, indeed! Bread is a significant component of any meal, whether it is breakfast, dinner or supper. The amazing and inexpressible smell of freshly baked bread heats the imagination, tempts the appetite, and creates a special atmosphere at home. When it comes to taste, it is certainly second to none, even to the most delicious product.
However, a fresh loaf with a ruddy crispy crust with a flesh so lush and weightless like fluff still needs to be properly cut. How will it look like if you use a small, blunt or other unsuitable knife? The result can hardly be served up!
It is specifically for these purposes that the dedicated bread knife was developed at the beginning of the last century. Only this knife can cut the loaf like butter into smooth and neat pieces without torn edges and crumbs.
The bread knife is distinguished by a blade with a medium width and an outstanding length - it must cut easily even oversized pastry. It is typically within 25-30 cm, although there are specimens with less size. It is recognized that the longer the blade, the cleaner the cut.
Another feature is the serrated cutting edge with a smooth undulated shape. The teeth are not very pronounced, and the distance between them is fairly large. This blade configuration enables to effectively "gnaw" through a hard crust, without crushing or crumbling the tender core.
Incidentally, it is this feature that allows the knife to perfectly handle not only buns, but also other products having a fairly hard crust and a delicate core: pineapples, citrus fruits, tomatoes, watermelons, melons, etc. The blade point is either rounded or cut, since, given the narrow specialization, the bread knife does not need it.
Our store's range features several specimens of magnificent bread knives. They can be found in the following collections:
These versions have all features of professional knives and can be used even in the HoReCa environment, as well as will fit perfectly into the set of tools in the home kitchen.
No less effective and quality knife. The absence of a bolster makes it unsuitable for a café or restaurant, but quite suitable for your home kitchen.
This series is represented by two bread knives with handles of different color — black and white. They have another zest: they are two-sided saw knifes with teeth of different shape and distance between them.
The shape of some of them is perfectly suited for slicing bread or fruit. The other side is designed for dealing with frozen foods. It is commonly known that the manufacturers of most good knives do not recommend using bread knives for cutting bones or frosts as this can disable the tool. However, some foods are easier to cut half defrosted such as animal liver or lungs, etc. This is exactly where our saw knife will come in handy. It will cope equally easily with both tendons and cartilages.
