I have always used and still enjoy my CUTCO bread knife. It has a very
sharp serrated edge and is at least 12" long. They come with a life-
time warranty and they will resharpen their knives for a nominal charge.
I have several of their knives and wouldn't think of using anything
else! It works great on hot bread as well as the harder crust breads.
The company is located in Olean, New York. Their number is
800-828-0448. They run sales in the fall for holiday gift giving. The
knife is about $45, but well worth it.
