Everyone needs a good, serrated bread knife and this one fits the bill! Ice-hardened so it assures you sharpness, durability and rust and chip-free! It is a bit lighter in weight, due to being a stamped knife, but holds up very well when compared to a forged knife. Nice handle for gripping and also comfortable, with 3 rivets. No need to sharpen a serrated knife and can be used for breads of all sorts and also can cut thru most hard rind fruits. The Gourmet line is a well-made, dependable line.
