That make life easier! We've been trying to cut bread, bagels, etc with the world's worst knife (I think it cost 2 bucks at the grocery store). Pia stepped up and bought this green bread knife from "The Pampered Chef" and it's great! Cuts through bread like nobody's business. And chances are I won't end up back in the ER with my finger sliced off from trying to cut a bagel with world's dullest knife.
