A serrated knife is for more than just bread. We wanted a serrated knife that could make quick work of soft fruits and vegetables, and even carve up leftover roast or chicken.

If you want to spend less, we recommend the Mercer Millennia 10-inch Bread Knife – Wide for its price and maneuverability. Though the blade is thicker than the Victorinox’s and offers a little less control due to its large, pronounced teeth, it’s still a good value so long as it’s about half the price of our top pick. If you aren’t looking to make wafer-thin, even slices of bread and vegetables, and you just want a good workhorse in the kitchen, this is the knife for you.

For the home cook who wants something a little more elegant, we like the Tojiro ITK Bread Knife. It’s a bit more versatile than the Victorinox because its scalloped blade also works well as a meat slicer. To be honest, all three of the upper-tier serrated knives we tested performed the same; the Tojiro just happened to be the least expensive. The only flaw we could see is that though it’s sharp, the scalloped teeth require a couple of sawing motions to dig into bread crust. This attractive knife has a satisfying weight to it, an ergonomic pakkawood handle that’s comfortable to hold, and a razor-sharp edge.
