Line-up: bread knives
A bread knife can be used for many things other than just cutting bread. Really? Yes! The serrated edge can handle hard vegetables and fruit such as melons, pumpkins and celeriac. We were curious to find out which bread knives would suit us best. These are four of our favourites!
Eden Classic Damast bread knife
The Eden Classic Damast bread knife has the best price-quality ratio. The classic serrations easily cut through the bread. The serrations do not extend all the way to the tip. This was deliberately done; you want to use that tip to cut through the last part of the crust. And that works best if the tip is smooth!
Kai Shun Classic bread knife
This Kai Shun Classic came out best in our test! The serrations have a wavy shape. As such, this knife will easily cut through hard bread. In addition, the knife also looks amazing thanks to its damascus steel blade.
Rober Herder Grandmoulin bread knife
The Rober Herder Grandmoulin bread knife. An amazing knife that was completely made by hand. Sharpened according to the traditional 'Solinger Dünnschliff' principle. As such, it is razor-sharp and so good that famous culinary journalist Wouter Klootwijk named it 'the best bread knife in the world'.
Eden Pankiri Japanese bread knife
The Eden Pankiri is a Japanese bread knife. The entire edge is very thin, so the cutting resistance is very low. As such, you end up with fewer crumbs. The half-tang construction ensures that the knife is nice and lightweight.
