Take perfect slices from even the biggest, brawniest breads with just a single stroke using the 8-in. Bread Knife. Use a gently sawing motion --no need to apply any downward pressure-- to cut through the crusts of crunchy baguettes and sturdy sourdoughs without crushing the soft crumb interiors of the loaves. It's perfect for slicing delicate cakes and fresh-from-the-oven meatloaf, too! Bread knives are indispensable come summertime when watermelons reach their peak. The thin serrated blade of the 5.5-in. Serrated Tomato/Bagel Knife makes halving bagels a breeze! Use a gentle sawing motion to prepare ultra thin tomato slices without crushing them. The tomato/bagel knife is also ideal for those beautiful, nearly translucent cucumber and citrus slices. Its forked tip is handy for arranging slices on a platter, too. Don't serve brunch without it.
