A classic amongst the range of knives that belong in every kitchen: as well as bread. this knife is suitable for use on hard-skinned vegetables and fruit. as well as for roasts. especially those with crackling. The concave (inwardly curved). serrated edge of the knife works like the teeth of a saw. but is much finer. so no pressure is required to cut any sort of bread and even a hard crust will allow a clean cut.
