Bread knife

Bread knife

Si rompre le pain peut revêtir un caractère trivial pour certains, ce geste peut sembler déplacé pour d’autres. Pour éviter tout désagrément, mieux vaut alors se tourner vers le couteau à pain, un ustensile à lame dentelée qui facilitera la découpe de tous les types de pains : du pain de mie à la baguette en passant par les plus gros pains aux croûtes les plus coriaces.

In addition to traditional bread knives with serrated blades in stainless steel or ceramic, measuring between 10–20 cm, stores also sell electric bread knives with 100 watts of power, some with blades that are able to cut through frozen bread. On the more practical side, there are also baguette guillotines comprising a cutting board (stainless steel or wood) with knife incorporated. And on the more exotic side, you can choose a pankiri, a Japanese bread knife with a blade as long as 35 cm.
