Zwilling J.A. Henckels Bread Knives

Slicing a loaf of bread without affecting its shape requires a quality knife. A long, serrated bread knife is designed to cut through, but not crush, soft bread. Buy a bread knife individually or as part of a cutlery set with a knife block for storage. It's also wise to buy a knife sharpener to keep your investment in top shape.
