    What are bread knives used for?

    A bread knife is a specialized tool designed for slicing bread and other baked goods. Its serrated blade allows for effortless cutting through bread crusts while maintaining the soft interior. Bread knives are also useful for delicately cutting pastries and cakes without disturbing their shape. Additionally, they can slice through crusty foods like baguettes, melons, and tomatoes. In some cases, bread knives can even be used for carving roasts. With their long, narrow blades and serrated edges, bread knives are essential for achieving clean, precise slices of bread and other baked items.
