It's always fun to have a few utensils that are eye-catching as well as functional. This nonstick bread knife from Kuhn Rikon fits the bill.Available in red or black, the 7-inch, serrated, carbon steel blade cuts cleanly through even thick, crusty breads. And it comes with a safety sheath, so you can make a whole production of unsheathing it at the table before slicing bread for your guests.
And you're definitely not sacrificing function for form. The ergonomic handle of the knife fits comfortably in your hand. Even better, the nonstick coating on the blade keeps food from sticking to it. It's a small touch, but one you'll appreciate frequently.
