When it comes to bread knives you need something that can slice through bread without squishing it and tearing the bread to pieces. We want our bread to look good and more importantly we want a bread knife that will stay sharp for a long time and that doesn’t require a ton of maintenance. There are a ton of bread knives on the market, but most of the are low quality and if they are sharp, they lose their sharpness very quickly.
So we have compiled a list of some of the top rated bread knives that the market has to offer.
The Vicorinox Granton Edge is one of top contenders for being the best bread knife, because it is a top rated knife on Amazon and is known for being sharp and can slice right through bread and doesn’t tear it up at all. Never worry again about squishing your bread. Oh and it also is recommended that you hand wash only and it does come with a lifetime warranty! (Yay!)
The blade of the Victorinox is honed by the manufacturer giving it the maximum sharpness that you can get, the beauty of it is that they do show you how you can hand sharpen the knife so that you can keep the knife sharp as it was brand new. The blade is also Granton edged which allows the blade to seamlessly slice through bread and it has a safe round tip, so don’t worry about poking someone or yourself on accident.
Finally, the grip is designed to fit well in your hand; Victorinox has a patented fibrox handle which is slip resistant, and your hand can wrap around it so easily it won’t even feel like you are holding a knife. Ha, but don’t forget that it is in your hand.
Need a bread cutting knife that will make cutting through bread feel like you are cutting through butter with a hot blade? The Wusthof bread knife is one of the top bread knives you can get on the market. It is a bit pricey, however it’s quality is impeccable and there aren’t many knives that are better than the Wusthof.
The blade is made from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, which gives the knife the qualities of being stain-resistant, sharp, and durability. The blade also has a award winning Precision Edge Technology, which makes the blade sharp as can be, and cuts with extreme precision. Not to mention you won’t have to ever worry about squished bread again, yay for nice bread!
Wait, what about the handle? The grip of the knife is Full Tang and triple riveted which gives you full control of the cuts and you will never have to worry about losing your grip while cutting your bread. yay!
The shun is one of the highest quality bread knives on the market because it is precision forged, comes with a lifetime warranty, and is perfect for professional cooks or food enthusiasts.
First off, the blade of the Shun is created from a precision-forged stainless-steel which keeps the knife from attracting gross stains, and thus ruining the quality of your knife. The blade is also created with 16 layers of steel giving it a high resistance to corrosion (still suggested that you don’t leave it in water for an extended amount of time.)
Lastly, the grip is phenomenal, reported by some reviewers as being one of the best grips they ever had with a knife. The handle is created with Pakkawood, in a d-shape form which if you prefer knives with a riveted handle you won’t like it… but if you prefer the straight handle you will be in love with this knife.
Want a knife that is lightweight, simple and gets the job done? Well the Global G-9 is a premium bread knife that comes with a lifetime warranty and is definitely unique from the rest of the knives that are featured. Some of your friends might go, “wow what a cool knife, where did you get it?” And you can tell them right from here.
Anyways, the blade is created from high-tech molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel that is razor sharp and is designed to slice right through bread without squishing it. That is always a plus cause I always hated it when I would cut my bread and it would be squished. With this knife, you will never have to worry about that again.
Finally, the knife handle is different than most because it is made with stainless-steel and then is dimpled to give you the firm grip that it has. Don’t be fooled by it’s looks that it would be slippery, because it is opposite of that. If you are cutting bread, don’t worry about losing your grip with this knife while cutting your bread.
Last but certainly not least is the J.A. Henckels bread knife, it is the least expensive on the list, so I worry a bit that the quality may suffer compared to the others, but it is definitely not out of the race for being the best bread knife. It does come with a lifetime warranty, and should be hand washed.
How sharp is it? I am glad you asked. This knife may be the least expensive but that doesn’t mean you necessarily sacrifice quality. The blade is crafted from a piece of stainless steel and then has a satin finish to give it a sharp edge.
The grip is decent as well. The grip is POM molded with a full rat tail tang to allow your hand from slipping while using the knife. However it doesn’t have as high as ratings as the other knives, which means it may be better to get a more expensive knife so that you do not lose quality. If you need a bread knife and are on a budget, then this knife is a good choice for you.
