Serrated Bread Knives

_​_

A serrated knife is a type of knife that has a saw-like wavy edge with small, pointed teeth. The teeth on the edge of the blade create a cutting action that allows the knife to grip and cut through certain foods more effectively.

The main purpose of a serrated knife is to cut through foods with a tough exterior and a soft interior, such as bread, cakes, pastries, or tomatoes. The teeth of the knife grip the surface of the food, preventing it from crushing or smashing as you cut. This helps to maintain the integrity of the food and produce clean, smooth slices.

The serrations on the blade allow for more control and reduce the need for excessive pressure when cutting. The saw-like action helps to grip the food's surface and evenly cutting through crusty and tough exteriors without squashing the soft insides.

While serrated knives can be sharpened like any other knife, they possess a unique quality that sets them apart. Unlike other knives, serrated knives can go for years without needing to be sharpened. However, it's important to note that sharpening a serrated knife is best left to professionals due to their distinct design. If you're interested in learning more about the process of sharpening a serrated knife, I recommend reading our Article on How to Sharpen Your Knives.

A bread knife is usually 8 to 10 inches long, ideal for easily slicing various bread sizes. Longer blades tackle wider loaves, while shorter ones offer more control.

Yes, there is a difference between a bread knife and a cake knife. A bread knife is specifically designed for slicing through bread and other baked goods with a tough crust and a soft interior. It typically has a longer, serrated blade that allows for smooth cutting through the crust without crushing or compressing the loaf. On the other hand, a cake knife is designed for cutting and serving cakes, including layered cakes, sheet cakes, and round cakes. Cake knives often have a long, thin, and slightly flexible blade that allows for precise slicing through delicate cake layers. Unlike bread knives, cake knives typically have a straight, non-serrated edge.

Bread knives are corrosion-resistant and dishwasher-safe. However, hand washing is recommended because it's gentler on the material. Use lukewarm water and mild detergent. Knives with wooden handles should always be hand-washed.
