Mac Superior Bread Knife

Posted

Pros: Good length, nice curvature, minimal crumbing

Cons: none

This is my new favorite bread knife, replacing my previous favorite, the Wusthof SuperSlicer. Similar blade design, in that the teeth are convex instead of concave. This allows the blade to slice more cleanly than a knife with "teeth", thereby reducing crumbing when slicing bread, etc. It actually slices better on the push than the pull which is fairly unique. The slight curvature reduces knuckle banging, a definite plus. I use this everyday, for slicing baguettes for crostini's, lemons, etc., but mostly for slicing the seared rare Ahi. It's definitely up to the task.

Best Bread Knives At Any Price

Pros: You Name It

Cons: Expensive

Very comfortable handle.  The reverse set on the blade and slight curve make it so the knife requires very little effort to cut consistently straight slices, with a smooth, narrow kerf. Laughs at the most difficult bread and most delicate cakes. Don't believe the hype, no serrated knife is as good a carver as a sharp, fine edged knife.  But as serrated slicers go, this is a very good one. Bottom Line:  If you want the best, you want this.
