First off... be sure your knife block can handle the 10" blade. I had to remove my sharpener (honing steel) in order to fit it in the block. No big deal, but it may be to some. Measure it out, first.

Other than that, the knife is GREAT! I like the feel of the walnut handle, which is nice in an age of plastic handles.

The teeth are spaced a LITTLE wider than my last bread knife, but I don't think it cuts differently. Either way, this knife cuts through even the toughest 3 day-old ciabatta crust with ease.

Don't overspend on your bread knife; if taken care of this will last your lifetime.

Superb Knife!!
I recently began making homemade bread and wanted to obtain a good bread knife. Being a fugal person... I balk at the prices of "designer cutlery".
This knife is every bit as well made as those selling for triple the price (and more).
* Heavy weight high carbon stainless steel blade
* Full blade tang through handle
* Triple riveted handle
* "Business End" of the knife is a full 10"... The entire knife is actually 15", including the handle.

In a Quality/Cost ratio analysis... This knife is an absolute STEAL!!!

I have owned a set of Chicago Cutlery knives for nearly 25 years. Sooner or later everything starts to wear out, so I decided to replace some of the knives in my original set. I was thrilled to find that Chicago Cutlery was still producing the same knives I had purchased years ago. The new knives are every bit as good as the originals and for the price, I doubt if there is a better value on the market. I fully expect that these knives will be the last I ever have to buy.

A very nice Made in China knock-off of the original 102S out of production Chicago Cutlery knife. A great little gift item or addition to your own kitchen.

Not quite as sharp or as well-made as the original. Only very knowledgeable would be able to tell the difference as there is no country of origin on this knife or on the original.

Made even better by 4 for 3 special offer.

Bought these, a sharpening steel and a filet knife for my friend's place in Hawaii. I stay there for a time each year and got sick and tired of the serrated stuff he had in the place. These will take and hold an edge, are built fairly heavily, seem quite durable. I had a set a number of years ago until I bought my Henckles.

Will they compete with the German made Henckles? No, but then again they cost less than a tenth of what the Henckles would have. For the price they are a bargain.

This is truly a superb knife in quality and performance!! After reading the customer ratings, I was convinced to try one of these knives for myself. All of the 5 Star Customer Ratings are true!!! This knife excels in performance well above knives that are triple the price and goes beyond all expectations of the higher priced knives. I also found that if you aren't careful, it also cuts fingers too!! I totally agree with a previous customer's comments - "For price and quality, this knife is an absolute STEAL!!!

The quality of this knife is good for the amount of jack. This knife will tackle any soft breads and cakes with ease. The one problem that I have run into with this knife however, is that the widley spaced teeth can be troublesome when cutting hard crusty breads. Since the teeth are widley spaced, it is prone to skipping if you are not careful. In short, skipping knife blade = sliced fingers. This is problematic to me since most of the bread I bake is rustic/french style bread. In all fairness, this knife has multiple purposes, but if you are looking for a good knife to cut those lovely baguettes you've been laboring over so insatiably, go with something with smaller teeth.

This is a nice, relatively inexpensive serrated knife with a blade long and sturdy enough to allow it to do more than just slice bread, which it does with ease.

Warning: The teeth on this knife are a little on the coarse side, so If you intend to slice delicate items such as pastries or smoked salmon, you may want to look for a knife who's serrations are finer.

I'm a professional chef and decided to try out this cheap 10" scalloped blade knife. It can cut well but it cant cut straight. When cutting a slice you should never try to twist your hand or force it to make it a straight cut. But you have to do this with this knife because it will give you a wedge shaped slice of bread. This is because of the tapered angle on the blade, both sides of the blade should have the same angle but on this blade, one side is tapered and the other side is mostly straight. This is a common manufacturing method for cheap home knives. If you have this blade just look down the blade from the end and you will notice the angles. I will stick with my professional knives. A good way to fully test this is to cut a large fruit with it. Try cutting a melon in half with this blade, it will truly drift off by about 2 inches. lol

The knife does an excellent job of cutting through the toughest crusts. The length is especially handy.

The only negative I have is that there should be a warning included with the knife to avoid putting it in the dishwasher. I used the dishwasher and the finish came off the wood handle on the first washing
