The sharp points of the serrated edge pierce into hard crusty loaves or soft skinned fruits and veggies to maintain a strong hold, offering better control throughout slicing. The scallops between each point reduce friction, so each slice feels effortless. The scallops also prevent the knife from squashing bread slices or the tender interiors of fruits and vegetables. The heft helps to make quick work of melon rinds and pineapples, while the razor sharp blade is perfect for slicing delicate eggplants and peaches. Whether you prefer to cut wafer-thin slices or large hearty ones, the thin blade offers the presicion needed for even slices every time.
