    If I’m looking at spreadable butter I tend to go Mainland it is, basically, cream and salt.

    Legit question, how is it worth nearly 4x this? https://www.ikea.com/au/en/p/voerda-bread-knife-black-902892...

      You will pretty much know if it's a decent knife or not when cutting through a crusty loaf. My nice looking red handle Wiltshire would pretty much explode through the crust and tear out the crumb. I recently bought a 10in Mercer and have found it much smoother to slice through. I believe the better quality steels will sustain their sharpness for at least a year or several.
      Thanks OP, had this saved in my list and managed to order before the price change. The Mercer is also 20% on Amazon off for >$24 ATM for anyone looking.

    Japanese made, quality steel, wooden handle, aesthetic appeal. Not hard to see why it costs more. That Ikea looks like cheap junk.

    •  

      There's a difference between something costing more and something being worth more. My question was "how is it worth nearly 4x this?".
      Just because you pay more for something doesn't automatically make it better.

        I would prefer to look - everyday - at this knife than the IKEA one.

    Who eats enough unsliced bread to justify this purchase? Barbara pleaseee

      I buy mine pre cut, I thought everyone did, or am I doing it all wrong?

      • +3 votes

        maybe for a loaf yeah, but lots of bread doesn't come precut if you buy from a super market like baguettes, sourdough, tiger bread etc. Also stays fresher for longer as you only cut what you need preserving the rest of it

          Love all of this!! The bread types and the freshness aspect

      Bread knives don't just cut bread. The serrated edge cuts easily through tough bread crust but it just as easily cuts through pumpkin, squash, melons and pineapple.

      for pastry chefs you can also use it to spread icing and do clean cuts on pie crusts, tarts and pastry without making a crumbly mess

      •  

        Good one. Been using the chef's knife to cut pumpkins (and watermelons); will try the bread knife and see if it makes a difference.

        ive seen the ads on tv. cut through steel pipes, shoes and then still sharp enough to slice tomatoes. never understood why shoes need to be sliced 🤷

      Alright bogan.

      •  

        The best thing since unsliced bread.

  •  

    Cannot add to cart, does anyone have the same problem?

  •  

    price back to 48.88

  •  

    How is this compared to the MAC bread knife?

  •  

    Worth $48.88, this thing is insane.

    Would recommend.

  •  

    For hard crust breads like sourdough this thing rips through with ease. I've had mine for 3 years and it's still sharp and cuts like butter.

  •  

    Serrated bread knives with similar rounded construction like the MAC are also much easier to cut with.

  •  

    Look at the size of that thing. Do you ppl cut your loaves lengthwise!? 😅

  •  
  •  

    I have a very similar looking knife to this. I must not understand the design or am using it wrong? The handle is inline with the cutting edge of the knife, so when you get to the bottom of the bread you need to angle the blade down or your hand will hit the bench, and it feels awkward to cut. Wouldn't it be better to have the handle raised relative to the knife edge, kind of like a butchers knife so you can finish cutting flush with the board?

    Someone please educate me on this simple life skill I have not figured out :(

    •  

      I've actually had this knife for a year now, works beautifully.
      It has a very slight curve on the edge of the blade which means you dont have to go flat to get to the bottom, and i also usually have the handle extending beyond the chopping board
