Serrated Kitchen Knife

A sharp-edged blade with saw-like notches or teeth formed on the cutting edge of the blade that enable it to slice cleanly through foods without damaging delicate or soft textures, such as bread or pie crusts. Serrated edge knives can be found with pointed teeth or rounded teeth on the cutting edge. The rounded serrated edge knife is sometimes referred to as scalloped or wavy. The rounded serrated edge is a little less abrasive than the serrated edge with pointed teeth, but may not work as well when cutting through the top crust of certain breads. It may have a tendency to slip when first cutting through the crust. The serrated cutting edge works well for slicing bread, soft fruits (peaches), soft vegetables (tomatoes), and food dishes such as pies, quiches, sandwiches, and pizza. Some knives made for specific functions will have serrations on both edges of the blade such as double-sided serrated blades formed into grapefruit knives that are used to section fruits and vegetables.

We spent over 15 hours researching and testing serrated knives, cutting through 15 crusty bread loaves of varying shapes and sizes, six pounds of ripe tomatoes, four pounds of roast eye round, and 10 roast beef sandwiches. And we found out you don’t need to drop a lot of cash on a good serrated knife. The best serrated knife for most people is the Victorinox Fibrox Pro 10.25-Inch Serrated Curved Bread Knife. It’s thin, sharp, and comfortable to use. For the price, you can’t find a more well-made, more versatile knife.

Though the average serrated knife blade is about 8 to 9 inches, we found that length too limiting, especially if you’re going to have only one serrated knife in your kitchen. Ten inches is the sweet spot. That’s long enough to get through a sourdough boule, but not so long that cutting through a baguette feels ridiculous. A 10-inch knife can slice eggplants lengthwise, and halve unruly sandwiches with one back and forth motion. A versatile serrated knife can also work in a pinch for slicing up a loin roast or rotisserie chicken.

Sharpening serrated knives is a tricky topic. We feel a serrated knife used in a home will not need to be sharpened if it gets moderate use and is well cared for. If a $40 knife goes dull after 10 years of service, simply buy a new one. Otherwise, the best way to sharpen a serrated knife is to send it to a professional knife sharpener.

In kitchen usage, a utility knife is between a chef’s knife and paring knife in size, about 10 cm and 18 cm (4 and 7 inches) in length. The utility knife has declined in popularity, and is at times derided as filler for knife sets.. This decline is attributed to the knife being neither fish nor fowl: compared to a chef’s knife, it is too short for many food items, has insufficient clearance when used at a cutting board, and is too fragile for heavier cutting tasks, while compared to a paring knife, which is used when cutting between one’s hands, (e.g., carving a radish), the added length offers no benefit and indeed makes control harder in these fine tasks. Some designs have a serrated blade.

Because serrated knives aren’t just for bread, we wanted a knife with a curved belly and a generous length. This makes jobs like cutting tomatoes and other soft-fleshed plant-based matter with tough skin much easier, because you can use a rocking motion. The extended heel offers exceptional knuckle clearance you won’t find with a straight serrated knife. In our testing, we found 10 inches to be a good length for most jobs, especially if you have only one serrated knife in your kitchen. A longer blade length can break down a pineapple and halve a (seedless) watermelon as easily as it can slice up a baguette. The Victorinox’s Fibrox handle is molded to be comfortable in the hand, and its textured plastic provides a sturdy grip.

We also spoke to experts who use knives in their everyday work: Jansen Chan, director of pastry operations at International Culinary Center, and Brendan McDermott, knife maker and chef instructor at Kendall College. These two culinary professionals have different uses for a serrated knife. Chan, a pastry chef, needs a sharp-toothed knife to saw through bread crust and expertly slice the domes from cake layers. McDermott is a savory chef, so he needs a good serrated knife for tomatoes and other tough-skinned fruits and vegetables.

Flat: The classic and most common style of serrated knife, this flat-blade knife can be found in most knife block sets. Though it’s fine for slicing bread, the lack of knuckle clearance makes this style of serrated knife a unitasker.
