Thought all bread knives are basically the same? Compare this Henckels bread knife to the MAC SB-105 Bread Knife and you’ll see that they’re not.
This knife is made from a lower-quality steel, has a shorter blade and cannot easily be resharpened. Those are some of the reasons we called the MAC “the ultimate bread knife”.
And they’re nice features, no doubt. But this Henckels bread knife has a few things going for it as well.
For one thing, the offset handle gets your hand out of the way when slicing a crusty bread. That allows you to use the entire blade when slicing.
This knife is also very sharp out of the box, and not overly expensive. So, while it might not be “the ultimate bread knife”, it’s a pretty darn good value.
