Interest in bread-baking may have waned since last year, but the need for a good bread knife remains constant. That's why thousands of Amazon shoppers are turning to an ultra-sharp bread knife that can cut through even the toughest homemade (and store-bought) loaves.

The Orblue Serrated Bread Knife has a razor-sharp 8-inch blade and a comfortable ergonomic handle. Made of stainless steel, the well-balanced knife can cut through just about anything, smoothly slicing bagels, bread, pastries, and vegetables. Because of the well-placed grooves on the handle, the knife is easy to maneuver, and they say it has plenty of edge retention to stay sharp for the trickiest chopping tasks.

Durability is key in any frequently-used kitchen tool, and this bread knife passes the test with flying colors. Since it's one continuous piece, you won't have to worry about loose screws or unwieldy wooden parts. The serrated steel blade resists dulling, bending, and rusting over time, and Amazon shoppers affirm that the knife maintains its sharp edge after more than a year of use.

Considering all these convenient features, it makes sense that the Orblue Serrated Bread Knife has earned over 4,000 positive ratings on Amazon and has become a best-seller. Shoppers rave about how much effort the knife saves them now that they no longer need to energetically saw their way through loaves. "This knife cuts through the crustiest of bread like it's butter," one shopper said, while another added, "It glides right through my artisan breads."

But this top-rated kitchen knife's abilities extend far beyond just cutting bread. One reviewer got creative, putting the knife's sharpness to the test by using it as a machete on the prickly cactuses of Arizona's deserts. Sure enough, they found that the knife "slices through Arizona's shrubbery like a hot knife through butter." And taking down a cactus is no easy feat.

Even professional pastry chefs are singing the knife's praises in the comments section, comparing the budget buy to high-end brands like J.A. Henckels, Wüsthof, and Shun.

"I have been in the culinary industry for over 15 years," a reviewer explained. "I have a $300 Henckels knife set that sadly did not have a bread knife in it. I didn't want to spend an extra $60 buying a Henckels bread knife, so I thought I would give this knife a shot. I'm astonished by how well this knife works, and I proudly put it up against my Henckels knives any day. The only thing cheap about this knife is the price."
