To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Long enough to get the through the wide boule loaves. It wasn’t until I sliced through the first loaf with this knife I realized how terrible our old bread knife was. Sliced through the crispy crust without crushing the loaf and glided through the centre like a knife through warm butter.
I've spent a lot of money over the years trying to find a decent bread knife. Thankfully I stumbled across this Mercer 11" slicer. It does a good job of slicing without tearing. I am really happy with it. The only thing to watch out for is 11" is quite long, takes a bit of time to get used the length. But the extra length is great for cutting cakes into layers, if that's a thing you do. I'm very pleased with the quality of the knife and feel it's good value for the cost.
This knife is incredible. I have tried other top quality knives but this one blows them away. It is incredibly sharp (be careful!) and after 10+ uses it hasn't needed sharpening yet. It's the perfect size for a "go-to" bread knife. I'd never heard of Mercer before but now I recommend it to everyone. This is a MUST have item!
