I purchased this knife just to see if it's "all that". By golly, it's now turned out to be a knife that I can't live without! When it comes to slicing soft baguettes or other soft breads, it won't squish the bread down and looks like it was professionally cut. I love it for tomatoes too, as it retains the tomatos' shape unlike any other knife and will slice a tomato so thin, you can see through it!
When I go to grab this knife and it's not in the knife block, I don't substitute another - I hunt it down till I find it! Thinking maybe I should by another - my mother might visit and take this one home!
