Fantastic bread knife

“Bought this as a Christmas present to myself and soon found myself very pleased with it.
It cuts everything from crusty homemade bread to crumbly fruit cake cleanly and easily. In addition, as with all the Signature knives, it has a really nice balance and very comfortable grip.”

Wonderful knife

“This is a wonderful knife, I have replaced my Global knives and this is just one of them. They are so easy to handle very comfortable in the hand. The bread knife arrived a few days ago and I am delighted with it. Thank you Robert Welch - I wish I had done the replacement of my global knives a lot earlier.”

Bread knife cuts as easy as butter

“I did a lot of research because we eat hard crusted bread almost daily. We already have a more expensive Global knife and an old Sabatier bread knife. The Robert Welch one is by far the best. It is easy in the hand and it cuts through bread without effort. Highly recommend.”

Seriously good breadkife!

“I have never had a bread knife quite like this one - it feels more like cutting through butter than bread! Excellent quality and a total joy to use. I live in France and use it for cutting a lot of French bread, and it even glides through frozen French baguette crusts! Another superb addition to my RW knife block. Highly recommend.”
