    We cut and toast bagels a lot. I've tried a number of different knives and this is by far my favorite bagel cutting knife yet! It cuts smoothly and accurately and is a great length for our use.

    Gotta say, I have never had such a sharp, perfect bread knife. I gotta say, these are my favorite knives. I purchased these for our church kitchen because of the price and the reviews, and then purchased a few for my home. I have other brands at home, and I consistently reach for the Mercers over any of these others. They hold their edge, are extremely sharp, and well balanced. I simply make sure that I use my hone on them before each use. Can't beat these knives for the price!!

    This knife is fantastic. You truly can cut through a loaf of bread without squishing it or it tearing all apart. It cuts smooth as butter. I also use this knife to cut cheese for parties. It is so easy to get through and will not harm the knife. Absolutely love it.

    This mercer bread knife is so cheap and great to have in the chef's tool box. We do a lot of crostini's at my hotel in banquet, so it gets old using the companies knives to slice 10 baguettes at a time. This knife glides through the product and is worth every penny!

    This knife was suggested to me in place of a Merckens Knife and I decided to try it. I am very pleased with it. I have tried both now and like both the same. Thanks for the savings.
