Bread Knife for Crusty Breads

Bada Bing | Sep 17, 201402:09 PM     31

I make a lot of rustic bread with serious crusts and softer but high-gluten interiors. My own bread knife is a saw-tooth cheapo that I've had for longer than I can recall--I think I inherited it from my grandmother--and it works okay, but maybe it could be better with more length.

Anyway, I have some friends who love my bread. Every time I take it to them, they ask me to cut it, and their knives are in no way up to the task. I'm thinking of gifting them with a knife, as well, next time I bring a loaf.

Unless someone can argue me otherwise, I won't accept that those wavy-type blades are up to this kind of bread. I also suspect that micro-sawtooth types are not ideal.

Suggestions for something effective and affordable?
