I've had excellent success with my electric knife.  I also have
a bread knife but I get thinner, straighter slices when I use the
electric knife.  Also, do not cut the bread as soon as it is done,
let it cool off completely before cutting (unless it is chocolate
chip bread, in which case it is usually consumed in hunks anyway
and gone before it has a chance to cool! :-)
