Perform all of your cutting tasks with this Wustof Classic bread knife. Made in Solingen, Germany, it was hand-forged in 38 manufacturing steps by skilled craftsmen. The high-carbon stainless steel serrated blade is hardened to maintain a sharp edge, and its full tang provides perfect balance with a riveted, high-impact composition handle. Wusthof's newest state of the art technology incorporates a new computer controlled method for putting the edge on Classic knives and allows for an exacting edge from the tip of the knife down to the heel. With this newer precision, the knives are made sharper to 14 degrees per side for a total of 28 degrees, doubling the sharpness retention. This knife is backed by a manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty and is the perfect addition to your cutlery collection.

When I received both knives they were beautiful, had a great feel, and were very sharp. As soon as I tried to cut some crusty artisan bread, bread which I bake all the time, the knives dulled; the entire edge on both knives folded over from end to end along the serrated side. Thus there was a burr that ran the entire length of both knives on the serrated edge. This happened as soon as I cut the first slice of crusty bread. The knives were NEVER used to cut anything but bread, and I only cut a few slices of bread. I can only believe the steel used to make these beautiful Wusthof knives must be defective, it must be very soft. NOTE: I have an eight inch Henckels serrated bread knife, a nine inch Henckels serrated bread knife and a 10 inch Victorinox serrated bread knife. They all cut the same crusty loaves of bread this Wusthof would struggle to cut, and they cut the crusty bread very well.
I want the 10 inch serrated Wusthof bread knife because I think it is a beautiful knife; I have a very nice knife collection (which includes three other serrated bread knives as stated above, all of which work well) and I feel this would make a nice addition to my collection, providing it works as it should.
The 10 inch serrated Wusthof bread knives I received were beautiful and felt great when I held them, but neither one of them would adequately cut the crust of bread that has a nice, crisp crust. Period.
I could have returned the replacement knife to Amazon for a full refund. But I sent the knife to Wusthof in Connecticut instead, so they can look at the knife and determine what is wrong, and either repair or replace the knife. I am of the belief that it cannot be repaired and must be replaced. There is no reason I can think of other than the fact that they must have used a bad batch of steel to make these knives. Wusthof is a premier knife maker; I have other knives made by them which are excellent. It must be a "one-off" problem.
BTW: I have about 35 quality knives in my collection (I've been collecting since the late 70s). I cooked professionally for 15 years and continue to cook and bake almost every day. I know the difference about how a knife should cut when properly sharpened, something else I also do (I keep all my knives razor sharp).
The reason I gave the knife 2 stars and not one is due to the fact that the replacement knife is being examined by Wusthof when it arrives there next week. I will amend my vote and post after they've had a chance to examine the knife, depending on what they tell me and the action they take.
UPDATE: They sent me a replacement knife right away. Same problem for all three knives. I changed my rating to one star due to this.
Thanks, Amazon, for the great price on this great knife!

The purpose of this review is to urge any shopper investing in a Wusthof bread knife to go for the full 10" length -- it makes a positive difference in leverage as you slice, and easily clears the diameter of virtually any boule, ciabatta, and other artisan loaves. The same principle applies to roasts and other meats, if you use your serrated knives for carving.
The length doesn't diminish anyone's ability to slice tomatoes, panini or any other foods, either. If you're going to spend $100+ on a quality bread knife, make your money go further with the 10" model.
