How high to go for a bread knife

dannynyc | Apr 12, 201110:54 AM     44

I've had a cheapo Ikea bread knife for years and am ready to upgrade. I love a good knife (just bought a Masamoto VG gyuto), but I'm wondering if it's really worth shelling out the money to get a top of the line bread knife. For example, the Wusthof Gourmet goes for half the price of the Wusthof Classic. It's obviously worth the extra money for a chef or utility knife, but for a bread knife? Is the difference between a stamped and forged blade significant for a bread slicer?

Any thoughts are appreciated.
