By far the best Bread knife I have ever used. Its weight and design lets it slice effortlessly through bread (and tomatoes if you are too lazy to get another knife out of the block). We bought this knife as part of a set, and out of the bunch it is my favorite knife.
If you are having trouble deciding between the Classic and the Grand Prix, I prefer the Classic.Although the Grand Prix is slightly more comfortable, I prefer the construction of the Classic. If you inspect the knives, you will see that the Wusthof Classic has a full metal tang with 3 rivets. The Grand Prix, although having the same blade, has a smaller, cylindrical tang that runs the entire handle of the knive. This tang is secured by a single large rivet at the end of the handle. Although I'm sure the Grand Prix is well built, I bought these knives for a lifetime of use and heartier construction of the Classics just appealed to me more.

There are really two main competitors in the high-end mainstream kitchen knife market: Henckels and Wusthof. Those who have used both usually have a preference. My preference (and therefore bias you should know about) is for the Wusthofs.
The Wusthof Classic line is the more conservative counterpart to the Grand Prix line. The only difference, however, is the handle style. I personally prefer the Grand Prix, but this is an issue of personal preference. The balance and grip of these knives are as close to perfect as I have found. For those wondering what benefits a higher priced knife provides, one benefit is that the blade (or tang) is one piece all the way through the handle. This makes the blade much stronger, and less likely to snap.
This particular model, the 8 inch bread knife, is a great knife. Many people think tomatoes are the hardest food items to clearly cut. I think bread is much more difficult; but this knife makes the task seem easy. My only quibble is the length. I find the 9 inch bread knife to be a better length for most loaves of bread.
I recommend the Wusthof 8" bread knife, but I would try out the 8 inch and the 9 inch to see which you prefer.

Warning: Prepare to waste a lot of bread! This knife will make you slice bread just for the fun of it. The weight of the knife alone is enough to cleanly cut even the thinnest slices, from any kind of bread.

Forget about buying sliced bread. Slice your own!

One of my young ones received this as a gift and when it arrived at work we all just HAD to give it a try. We bake all of our breads from scratch and our crusty loaves surrendered meekly to this blade in two strokes no matter which recipe we attacked...it even sliced our house "Wonder Bread" sandwich loaves cleanly! This 9 inch is sooo much more versatile and heftier than the 8 inch ...size really does matter.
I'm biased against all Wusthof "Classic" knives...I think that they're too light weight and small scaled (the grip is too narrow for me) but...
I bought TWO of these for myself 'cause this is the BEST bread knife that I've EVER used although I highly recommend the "Grand Prix" line for it's better "grip".
Biased or not I'm still loadin' dis bad boy up wit tha MAX ...5 mojo*z! HAZAAH!!!

You can only slice crunchy crusts with a serrated blade. So obviously this is your best bet for slicing bread. But, I use my Wusthof Bread knife for cutting frozen meats and it works great for that too.
High quality steel ( x50 Cr Mo 15), high production standards. Comfortable, "familiar" Wusthof Classic 3 rivet handle construction, with a stiff backed forged blade with sturdy weight and balance for multiple uses in the kitchen.

I bought this knife as a replacement for a cheap one that we used for years but was finally too dull to keep. After using it, I can't figure out why I didn't buy this a long time ago. It's fantastic. The handle grip is terrific, you get great leverage and the blade is wicked sharp--it's almost scary. I own both Henckels and Wusthof, and to me the Wusthof is definitely the superior blade. I highly recommend this knife.

I am very happy with this knife. It is flexible enough for cutting a loaf of thick-crusted bread, and the serrations are still sharp after two years of constant use. No kitchen should be without it.
