Love at First Slice
Here at Breadtopia we're constantly on the look out for the best products at the best prices. It's one of our many obsessions.
Bread knives in particular is a product category we've spent a lot of time on, testing many knives in our own kitchen.
This Wenger bread knife, made in Switzerland, hits the sweet spot for form, function, quality and price.
Swiss steel is renowned for its quality and durability. The blade on this model is both extremely sharp and thin. Sharp enough to easily cut through the crustiest bread with ease and thin enough to slice the most delicate beads without tearing the dough. We also use ours to cut thin slices of tomatoes. The cutting edge of the blade is slightly curved so you can more easily cut all the way through your bread.
The best steel in the world still eventually needs sharpening. This Wenger bread knife can be sharpened with a hand or electric sharpener designed to handle serrated blades.
The resin handle feels good and fits comfortably in the hand.
This knife passed our "reach for" test with flying colors. It's the knife we found ourselves most often reaching for among the many available to us. So much so that we have dropped from our line a couple other knives that we had carried for some time.
