Dexter Russell Slicing Knives

These Dexter Russell Slicing knives make cutting through bread and meat quick and easy. A variety of styles means these knives are sure to meet all your cutlery needs. Check out this informational video to learn more!

Alina Eisenhauer (Owner of Sweet Dessert Bar, Worcester, MA): Running my own restaurant every day and competing on nationally televised food shows, having the right tools is the most important thing. When I’m in the kitchen, the brand of knife I use the most is Dexter. With a quality design and ultimate sharp edge, Dexter is the best knife on the market for pros like me. Culinary school teaches you skill, but you’ll always stay sharp in the kitchen with a Dexter knife.
Narrator: Dexter has a slicer for every task in your kitchen. They range in length from 10 inches to 14 inches, and feature different edges such as the honed straight edge, duo-edge, and scalloped edge. Straight, or plain, edges are designed to cut without tearing or shredding, while the duo-edge adds alternating cullens, or hollow, ground ovals that allow air and juices to enter the cut to reduce friction and make slicing easier.
Eisenhauer: With Dexter’s final cutting edge, these slicers are great for cutting meat. The edges are super sharp, long lasting, and thanks to superior edge geometry, they’re really easy to sharpen.
Narrator: Knives with scalloped blades feature many curved edges protected by sharp points that help to break through bread’s hard crust. As these points break through, the curved edge slices the soft interior without damaging it. Dexter bread knives come in lengths from 8 inches to 12 inches, and feature straight, curved, and offset blades.
Eisenhauer: With an offset handle, I can cut completely through a loaf of bread, or a sandwich, without my working hand ever coming in contact with the cutting board. This really is my favorite knife. Whatever the task, Dexter gives me the edge, with better quality, comfort, and durability.
Narrator: Dexter slicers are tough, kitchen tough. Our exclusive DEXSTEEL™ enhances sharpness, performance, and corrosion resistance. Dexter knives are sharp out of the box, and stay sharp, and they’re easy to re-sharpen, even after significant use.
Eisenhauer: Dexter knives are comfortable in my hand. They’re perfectly balanced so my wrist doesn’t feel fatigued.
Narrator: Find your favorite grip among the handle choices, like Dexter’s most popular Sani-Safe®, V-Lo®, DuoGlide®, and SofGrip™ options. If you prefer a forged knife, consider Dexter’s Connoisseur® or iCUT-PRO™ lines that deliver balance, performance, and style. All of these product lines are NSF certified. When you hold a Dexter knife, you’ve got nearly 200 years of cutlery knowledge in the palm of your hand. Dexter is the industry leader because of a commitment to producing quality, American-made knives that perform day in, and day out.
Eisenhauer: My business, my life, my passion, it’s all cooking. So, I stay sharp with Dexter knives.
Narrator: Dexter is the largest manufacturer of professional cutlery in America. Our Southbridge, Massachusetts factory has produced the finest quality cutlery and technological advancements since 1818. We take pride in every knife we make. That’s why each knife we produce is tested for quality and performance before it reaches your hand.
Alan Peppel (President and CEO of Dexter-Russell): If you use Dexter products, we thank you. We hope we can be your product solution. At Dexter, we’re not the best because we’re the oldest in America, we’re the oldest in America because we’re the best.

    When the cooks said they needed new knives they requested this one specifically. They had just one hidden in a locker that they brought out like a treasure and said “we want this one” so I bought 6. When the other stores found out they came by and took a few so I will be ordering more. They stay sharp, very versatile ( we don’t cut bread with them), and the handle is ergonomically shaped and comfortable. The kitchens go to knife.
    Good solid construction. Sharp and easy to clean. Bought this and use this daily. I like the angle of the blade and makes for clean and easy cutting.
    This is an excellent quality knife for a fantastic price! The offset makes it easier to cut bread and sandwiches that are of a rounded shape. I love that this knife will not slip from your hands and that it stays sharp for a long time.
    the Dexter Russel bread and sandwich knife is great. Works well for cutting all kinds of breads and sandwiches. Made sturdy and will last a long time .
    This is a great sandwich knife. Definitely not the best knife I have used but for the price you can't go wrong with this product

    The Dexter-Russell 7 1/2" serrated bread knife is a great tool to have in the kitchen. It slices though small cake lays quickly and does a great job. This is a great tool for shaping cakes as well.
    Very happy with the knife cuts very easily the food and not just bread very durable material and very good price and fast shipping. I use it for my home and i am very happy.
    This is a great bread knife! The serrated blade is sharp enough to cut into even the hard crusty breads and the off set angle of the handle make it very comfortable to use.
    This knife is a must have for every kitchen. The offset is set perfectly and the handle fits well in your hand. It is almost impossible for it to slip. The blade is sharp and it has stayed sharp so far. I haven't needed to sharpen it. I expect it to last for a long time. Definitely was worth purchasing!
    This is a great design and perfect for cutting sandwiches. The only thing that would make them near perfect iis if we could sharpen them.
    This is a great bread knife. The handle is sturdy & the blade is super sharp...be careful! I am a fan of Dexter knives, they are quality products at a great price!
    This is an amazingly useful knife. For us, is the best on breads and sandwiches. Slices easily, and handle is easy to use, giving a lot of leverage. Will go through the hardest of breads, and we also use this to tackle oddball things like cutting into tubes of herb paste to get all the last bits out. We have even used it to cut through bully sticks for our dog treats. It will also cut through a plastic juice bottle for science experiments. Yes, we primarily use this on food, but it is so rugged we have used it on other things, so I wanted to illustrate how durable and tough it is. Amazing value for the price. We'd buy more, but we bought this 2 years ago and it barely shows any use at all. Going strong! Would recommend, and buy as gifts for foodies.
    Comfortable grip handle the blazed a pretty sharp babe it's wonderful to be able to do toast with its our main nigh for toast it's been holding up for several months and we've had no issues would definitely get this again
    I purchased the dexter bread knife to use with our homeade sourdough breads. This knife cuts through the thick bread crust with ease. Great utility knife as well.
    Very nice offset knife, I never had a offset knife before, but thought this would be good for bread, and it is. Crusty loaves slice right up and don't get all compressed.
    We ordered this for our restaurant. We use daily for slicing our bread. It makes a clean, smooth cut. We will order it again if the need arises.
    Used the Dexter-Russell 31606 7 1/2" Offset Serrated / Wavy Edge Bread and Sandwich Knife to cut crust off of bread. Made the job so easy to do. Great item.
    Use these all the time in the kitchen and they work great. I bought a few of these already and if needed in the future I will buy more.
    Knife has a solid, heavy duty feel especially for the price. It slices through bread and sandwiches with ease, and is also great for art and craft projects like sawing through styrofoam shapes.
    Great knife at a great price. The line cooks really love this knife and it is very easy to clean and store. Holds an edge well.
    Dexter is my choice for knives. Nicely priced, this one is perfect for slicing sandwiches . I call her old reliable, always and count on it for the touch cuts.
    I love this knife! Perfect size for the loaves of homemade bread that I bake on a regular basis. I can make slices as thin as I like, even with the crustier breads! Very sharp and sturdily built. I use it nearly every day and look forward to many years of use from this knife.
    Very sharp and reliable. Cuts through bread cleanly and with ease. Also works well for slicing vegetables. The shorter 7 1/2" blade is also more maneuverable than most other bread knives that typically have longer blades.
    This knife works amazingly. It is a quality product with a good sized blade. I never used a knife with an angled handle, where was I before??
    This is a great economical sandwich knife. We use it for rolls and all of our toasted bread sandwiches. It is also great for tomatoes with the serrated edge.
    This serrated knife is useful as a bread knife but also dices and slices tomatoes and other vegetables very well. Also there is a less threat of getting cut with it. I have 3 in my kitchen and they stay cutting well for a long while.
    So sharp! I love the bend in the handle. It helps avoid issues with table edges. Works exceptionally well for large bagels. Very easy to clean, also.
    We call this our dog-leg knife...not super sure why, but it is everyone's favorite knife in the kitchen. It cuts everything and stays sharp forever!
    This is a great inexpensive bread knife. It is great for crusty baguettes and very soft loaves. It cuts just about anything with little effort.
    Awesome knife, makes cutting sandwiches a breeze. Sharp. I like this model because it's not as long as some of them, but still plenty long enough to get the job done.
    Amazing serrated bread knife! It cuts the bread very smoothly and does not cause there to be a lot of crumbs like the knives leave that I have used in the past.
    when it comes to offset serrated knifes this one is a cut above the rest and this price you cant go wrong, buy buy buy
    excellent product, even more "excellenter"price. great on breads, some meats. even use for some filleting activities. Dexter russell rules in poly handle knives for sure
