If I was just reviewing this knife for myself, I'd only give it three stars. I'll explain why, but I think most people would like it just fine, if you ever managed to get past the sticker shock, that is.

Pros:
Excellent materials, including German steel that "rings" like it's auditioning for a Johnny Depp swashbuckler. Proper forged bolster, nicely-riveted handle, great blade curvature, lovely weight and balance.

The teflon is a nice touch, especially for soft, damp breads and non-bread items - this is an excellent tomato knife, for example. The blade also has a really nice extra-sharpened tip.

Cons (my three particular nit-picks first):
I make big, crusty loaves that the knife is sometimes a little too short for.

The scallops are only on one side of the blade, meaning that it doesn't naturally cut straight and is right-handed only, which the description doesn't mention. For the dexterous majority, that's no problem, but for us sinister types, it's a fairly big deal.

I find it too shallow, sometimes scraping my knuckles on the work counter when using thin cutting boards.

I'm not sure how durable the Teflon is: when I did the Johnny Depp "ring" test, I managed to put a ding in it, though I wasn't being remotely rough (or remotely swashbuckling, for that matter).

And finally, back to the sticker shock. I happily shelled out a similar amount for my big Henckels chef's knife, but it's rarely out of my hand when I'm in my kitchen. After writing this, I checked Cooks Illustrated (the definitive source for comparative equipment reviews). They didn't particularly like the (significantly cheaper) F.

It is really strange that all of these reviews on here are from people who got the product for free in exchange for a review...

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Serrated knives are unique in that, unlike other knives, it's not the quality of materials that matter most when cutting, it is the shape of the knife. That's why you see some cheap knives on TV commercials performing amazing feats: slicing through a boot, an aluminum can, the cutting board! It's the teeth, not the blade's edge, that allow it to saw through these foods. For that reason, I never spent much money on a bread knife. In fact, for years now I have been using an inexpensive (and completely straight) 8" Kitchenaid Bread Knife to cut bread, crusty roasts, tomatoes, pineapples, and cakes.

To be honest, the Kitchenaid works as well today as the day I bought it, never required any sharpening or maintenance, and was a lot cheaper than this knife. That said, this knife is definitely better, due mainly to its curved shape and its nonstick coating. It doesn't change my mind that you should get great chef's and paring knives before splurging on a great bread knife. It does, however, make me realize that a great bread knife is out there and is a wonderful thing to have.

When I unpackaged this knife, I immediately set it to work slicing crusty French bread. The mother of pearl handle is nice looking and ergonomic enough not to slip out of your hands, even if they are a little wet. (It is not a grippy handle, though, like a Fibrox one.) The blade has a dark, nonstick coating applied to it, which looks fabulous and improves performance a little, as you might expect. I noticed that a lot fewer little crumbs clung to it as I cut slice after slice, as compared to my old Kitchenaid. Crumbs sticking to a bread knife are not a huge problem, mind you, but the nonstick coating does help the knife glide smoothly through the bread.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The (to me) unique feature of this bread knife is that the blade curves upward more than usual, and it does cut bread somewhat faster than a bread knife with a straighter blade. Since this is supposed to be a chef's knife, that might make a big cumulative difference to someone who uses it all day. The knife is very sturdy, it's sharp, and it's easy to handle. The weight is almost identical to that of my eight-inch Henckels bread knife (with which I have been very satisfied for several years). The blade is a modern-looking charcoal gray, and the handle is a light gray, faux mother-of-pearl. The knife comes in a rather large metal presentation box--a bit bulky to keep in the kitchen but probably useful for purposes other than storing this knife long term. This would make a very nice wedding or holiday gift for someone who loves to bake, or to hold parties, and who appreciates the cachet of having a real chef's bread knife.

There's nothing better than bread fresh out of the oven. Thin slices of soft warm wonderfulness smothered in butter!

My wife is the kitchen master in our house. While she does make fresh bread, she doesn't make it every day. So she experimented with the knife and used it in a variety of situations from finely slicing raw flank steak to chopping cabbage. While it is a great bread knife, it's also a very a great knife in general. The non-stick coating makes it a breeze to clean. The anti-bacterial coating gives me peace of mind. It is thin, has the right weight, and the blade is curved to make bread cutting effortless. It cuts through soft bread without smushing and easily cuts the toughest crust. It's well made and well designed.

In fact, the knife only lost a star because of the packaging. I'm going to attach a picture so you can better see what I'm talking about. The knife comes in a clear soft plastic sleeve. That knife and sleeve is then put in a metal box filled carboard confette. The box and confette are both nice touches that I'm sure came from some marketting conversation on how to make this a better wedding gift. Unfortunately, it they measured the knife and not the knife in it's sleeve when ordering boxes. I assume they realized their mistake and decided it was just good enough!

Because, you see, the solution to the long sleeve issue is to bend the sleeve. But the box isn't much longer than the knife. In my box the sleeve was bent right at the point of the knife. Then in shipping, my box hit a bumpy road or some turbulence. Because of the bend, the sharp point of the knife rubbed against the sleeve and cut it. The knife also slid forward and back in the box which caused the handle to ding one side of the box and the point to poke the other!
