Cuts through crusty bread like butter

I bake bread a fair bit and this knife cuts through the crustiest of loaves effortlessly. It made me realise how awful all of my previous in had been. I’ve gotten many compliments on this knife too. Highly recommend Katto

Adriana Williams

We bake a lot of bread in our house and have tried lots of bread knives over the years. The Katto one is the best one by far, it can handle very thick crust, very fresh bread, big loaves, you name it. Looking forward to using the free sharpening service. The customer service is second to none too. I had a few questions before ordering and they were very quick to answer them.
