Form follows function. Following this guiding principle of product design, designer duo Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez have designed a bread knife for the ZWILLING Pro series. It impresses with its optimally balanced shape and a 20 cm stainless steel blade made of high-quality ZWILLING special formula steel. This allows the safe and precise cutting of hard bread crusts, rolls and bagels. The sturdy knife forged from a single piece of high-performance steel also easily cuts produce such as pumpkins or melons. The ergonomically designed plastic handle makes it particularly safe to use when cutting. The knife's wedge shape represent a symbiosis of Japanese and European knife culture and offers excellent sturdiness when cutting. The long FRIODUR blade is made of high-quality ZWILLING special formula steel. This is a stainless special formula steel that has undergone special ice-hardening. ABS plastic handles ensure increased safety when cutting. They are adorned by three rivets to underscore the elegant design of the knife.

  • Curved bolster encourages cutting with improved precision, safety and comfort
  • POM handle is durable and resiliant
  • SIGMAFORGE knife is forged from a single piece of Special Formula High-Carbon NO STAIN stainless steel
  • Ice-hardened FRIODUR blade starts sharper, stays sharper longer, and has superior resilience
  • Precision-honed blade and laser-controlled edge ensures ideal cutting angle for sharpness and durability
  • Full tang and handle are triple-riveted for superb stability
  • Dishwasher safe, had wash recommended

ZWILLING Pro 8-inch Bread Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 83.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cleanly slices through any crust - hard or soft The slicing action of this bread knife is questionably good. The serrated teeth catch and cut right through the crustiest sourdough or glides thorugh the tenderest crumb of a sponge cake. And the quality of this knife is terrific, it is part of the Pro line, one of Zwilling's best. The steel will hold up for a lifetime and the knife requires no maintenance. It features an angled bolster, a new design that matches the grip of professional chef's. It keeps the thumb and forefinger in the correct position for maximum control. My personal preference is at 9 inches for a bread knife, otherwise this knife would have 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Knife Bought this knife for slicing bread, rolls, muffins, and cakes. It is too short for flattening cake layers in one cut which is the reason for the 4 stars. I will be purchasing a 10" bread knife in the near future. It has proven to be very useful for slicing meat, for example thin slices of chicken breast meat. It is very sharp and very well balanced. I am not an enthusiastic fan of serrated knives because of the inconvenience of maintaining the edge, I don't like seeing any shiny, rolled over spots on a knife edge. So far I have been able to use a steel to straighten the shiny points.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Substandard Quality This was to be a gift and the start of quality repertoire of knives; however, the Pro 8-inch Bread Knife was of inferior quality upon arrival. I attempted to contact Customer Service 10 days before Christmas to see how to handle the situation and was assigned a case number automatically. While waiting for a reply I went ahead and gifted the knife in hand. Now it is 01/06 and I have already made a second attempt to contact Customer Service. The knife arrived with small chips toward the serrations at the tip. Several other serrations are rough, irregular and asymmetrical. The knife was poorly finished and somehow passed an inspection after manufacturing. It is not a first quality knife. This was my first Zwilling purchase, and I am not sure if I am more disappointed with the product or the customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Size This 8" bread knife is a great size because it is big enough to tackle most jobs yet small enough for you to feel fully in control. The incredible part of this razor sharp bread knife is the unique serration pattern that allows the longer serrations to puncture the crust first and continue through without squishing the soft center. The curved bolster provides a comfortable spot for your thumb and forefinger and like all Pro series knives this is perfectly weighted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate Bread Knife We’ve been making a ton of sour dough bread in quarantine and have really wanted to upgrade our bread knife. We received this Zwilling 8 inch bread knife as a wedding gift and love it! It has the perfect weight which helps you cut the bread in even slices. Especially with sour dough which has a pretty tough crust, this knife makes it so easy. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bread knife I am very pleased with this bread knife. The forged German steel and construction make a very sharp very strong blade. The curved bolster makes it easy and comfortable to hold properly and gives me straighter slices. Its not just for bread. Its great for anything with a harder exterior and softer interior like tomatoes and citrus. I also use it on my mellons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great bread knife This is a great bread knife. This is one of my go-to knives in the kitchen. The serration is so much better than other serrated bread knives I’ve used. This does a beautiful job of cleanly slicing bread, fruit, meat without tearing or squishing. Also with the curved bolster, it makes it much more comfortable to grip the bread knife with ease and confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Any knife from the Pro collection is worth using and owning! A good bread knife is only a reach away, if you add it to our block on the counter. I use this one every day - as we love French bread (that hasn't been sliced), kaiser rolls, biscuits, you name it! If it has a hard outer crust and soft inside, this will work for it!

I have an 8" professional serrated knife of yours.  Unfortunately, the end of the handle broke.  Can you replace or repair it?
