This knife might be called a bread knife but it is also great for slicing sandwiches, tomatoes and other veggies as well as fruits that have skins that easily bruise. The Victorinox bread knife is also great for making scalloped edge cuts through a harder crust or peel without squashing the tender interior. The bread slicer features a beautiful and authentic rosewood handle that is well balanced, high quality, and lightweight. The bread knife has an extremely sharp European stainless steel blade that has been a hallmark of Victorinox Swiss Army cutlery for over 130 years. The 8" blade chef's knife comes in a gift box and has a lifetime warranty.
