This is a great bread knife. The handle has a slight upward cant from the blade that gives your knuckles plenty of clearance. The fit and finish of the handle is perfect. 0.3
The blade has profile is flat from the heal to about the mid-point. From there it has a gentle upward curve towards the tip. The blade has a very nice satin finish.
If anyone is looking for an upgrade for their bread knife,then look no further.
My wife usually denigrates my purchases as "unnecessary" but I caught her yesterday telling her neighbor how great the new Tojiro 270 bread knife is and how there is barely a crumb and no indentation of the bread. Thanks and good luck.0.3
I’m in awe,I’ve never seen a bread knife that could shave arm hair0.3

I got one of these. I thought it would be a nice modest knife - nothing special but a longer bread knife than my classic Shun.
The factory edge is Exceptional. A factory serrated edge that push cuts paper! This type of wavy serrated edge is easy to sharpen and maintain as well. I’d consider this knife a bargain easily rivaling it’s competition for WAY less money. I’d consider this bread knife as standard equipment for a knife roll. Cheap enough to get one for home and one for work.
This knife is a winner!!! The sharpness OTB is amazing. The service was from chefs knives to go was great. 0.3
This knife is great. The factory edge is very sharp and the look and feel are excellent. For the price,this is a highly recommended bread knife.0.3

Sharpness is great. Shipping was much faster than I expected. Looks to be stamped,not forged if that makes a difference to anyone. 0.3
This is a beautiful bread knife,does exactly what it intends to and looks damn sexy while doing it.0.3

Excellent weight,very sharp,comfortable handle. 0.3
Best $55 I’ve ever spent on a knife. Razor sharp. Cuts through bread,watermelon,pineapple,and tomatoes with ease. Super light. Ridiculously fast shipping. 0.3

Love the knife,cuts artisan style bread like butter. Slices evenly,few crumbs. Wonder if I can cut other hard things,i.e. cheese,salami,etc. without ruining the blade?0.3
By: SueNew York,NY
This bread knife is AMAZING. It works very well on crusty sourdough bread also and because the blade is very thin,I can get very thin slices. Wonderful!!!0.3

Excellent bread knife. We use for slicing meat as well with outstanding results. Great price and fantastic looks. Thanks again.0.3
I like this knife so much I bought one for a second home. It also doubles as a great tomato slicer.0.3
By: Pat WilliamsAugusta,Maine
Very sharp,very nice knife. Quick delivery,I’d deal with this company again.0.3
It slices through around 40 loaves of bread a day. The edge cuts cleanly through crusty tops and most slices can be done with one stroke.
On a side note the knife also preforms beautifully cutting cherry tomatoes as shown in the demo video.
Conclusion = good price,correct length,smooth cutting action,great buy.

An outstanding knife for a surprising number of kitchen tasks,from tomatoes to roasts...and bread! Scalpel-sharp out of the box and wonderful balance. A highly recommended knife AND a highly recommended purveyor of fine cutlery: Chef Knives To Go.0.3

Best bread knife I have ever used hands down. The only thing I can say about owning this knife,is it took me so long to own it. Been using in a pro kitchen,first bread knife to stay in my bag. It doesn’t make the guy who went one on one with Iron Chef Michael Simon look so crazy for doing everything with a bread knife,hell now I think I may join him. I’m glad makers are finally starting to figure things out. Keep it up. I’m waiting for a day when it takes longer than 1.5 days to get something from Mark. He makes it hard on us knife guys.0.3

If you don’t have this bread knife,you should. I know what day my package will arrive when I Order it.0.3
This is the best bread knife that I’ve ever had the pleasure of using. I haven’t used the Mac bread knife,but the Tojiro blows the not-too-shabby Forschner out of the water. Fit and finish was excellent.0.3

Excellent knife,with flawless fit and finish.0.3
Tojiro has officially put its brand on the world map of knives with the ITK Bread Knife.0.3
Easily makes short,clean work of pastry and bread with firm crusts and soft interiors.
There’s a reason why it sells like hotcakes and I wouldn’t need to buy any other bread knife as long as this stays unchanged.
I got this in and finally got a chance to use it on a Pineapple and watermelon. What a difference compared to using my large Gyuto’s! Great for taking the skin/ring off of the food and then slicing down. No wedging and nice clean cuts. Also cuts bread very cleanly,too. Great knife,but a lot more versatile than I thought it would be!0.3
Superb serrated knife.0.3

You have just got to get this knife. It is more versatile than you can imagine. I find it Amazing!!!0.3

A classic,clean-looking bread knife with a superb fit and finish. The blade is long and thin. I wasn’t particularly excited about this knife until I went back to my previous bread knife (a Pure Komachi,which is not a bad knife at all for $10). The Tojiro is a WAY better knife than the inexpensive Komachi - the scalloped edge sails through crusty bread,and the slight curve of the blade helps make sure that you cut cleanly all the way through. A real workhorse,and a good value.0.3

What do I need to do to get a custom handled one? Best bread knife,and possibly best designed knives period I’ve ever used. I even did cucumber sheets with this thing the other day. A deba or a cleaver and maybe a petty with this knife and I could rule the culinary world0.3

Tojiro 270mm ITK Bread Knife is wonderful: it is light in the hand yet sturdy,sharp and elegant. Perfect for cutting bread.0.3
By: Justin Buffalo,NY
Not much to add to everybody else. Great price,shaving sharp out of the box. Leaves barely any crumbs at all,and glides through the crustiest of breads. Cannot currently see how I would need anything more than this out of a bread knife. 0.3
My husband loves all of his Tojiro knives. They are great!0.3

Iíve purchased three of these knives so far. Two were gifts for my sister and a friend. None of us can imagine using any run of the mill bread knife after using the Tojiro ITK. Iíve created another knife geek in my friend who is now slicing bread so thin heís holding it up to see light through it! lol0.3
Best bread knife I’ve ever owned. Perfect length,great blade (incredibly sharp!),and really well-made overall. 4 stars instead of 5,only because the handle felt a little awkward for me at first. I can’t quite put my finger on why. Maybe it’s because I’ve gotten used to wa-style handles lately. In any case,after using it for a little while,any awkwardness disappeared as I quickly grew to love the performance of the blade. Although it might look out-of-place to most people,personally I’d love a wa- handle put on this knife!0.3
Wow! That’s all I can say. I’ve never had a bread knife that can cut through the softest bread without even crushing it a little. Amazing. 0.3
By: jasonnew york
i have used this knife to cut exclusively sourdough breads with thick crusts. after about 1 month,the blade of this knife was completely dulled and burred. not only that,but the stiffness of the steel barely holds up when slicing larger breads. i can see how this knife would be fine for softer,yeasted breads,but for artisan hearth loaves this knife does not perform.0.3
By: Erik SCambridge,MA
Fantastic bread knife. It cuts excellently,and though I haven’t tested it on a hard,crusty bread yet it flies through light breads leaving nary a crumb. I have docked 1 star simple for F&F; I would give it 4.5 if I could,but just be aware that the tang on mine was slightly rough and larger than the scales,and the scale fit was fairly tight but not perfect,with some slight gaps.0.3
No complaints,works as expected,nice and inexpensive option for a great bread knife.0.3
Excellent performance the first time I used for cutting bread0.3
The knife is a beautiful,well crafted tool. The blade is quite thin,and very sharp allowing for thin slicing of bread. It cuts through crusty breads with two strokes of the blade and is proving to hold up to the test of a line work knife. The blade is a little more flexible that I would have cared for but it is also how it is able to be so thing. Overall I give the knife a 4.5/50.3

A wonderful knife0.3
The blade is great,but the fit and finish of the handle is weak. I wish I would have gotten the Richmond bread knife.0.3
The best bread knife I have used (3+ years professional kitchen experience).0.3

This is the 6th or 7th one of these I have bought friends as wedding presents. It is always a hit and the price is right. I use it and have converted lots of others to the pleasure of using quality knives.0.3
What a steal for the price! Incredible sharpness ootb,all the chefs I work with try and sneak it out of my bag because they love using it so much! Also,wonderful service from mark as usual. 0.3
By: Chris Lomelino Orlando,Florida
Fantastic knife,working in the business,I use it for a lot more than bread. Wish they made an offset version,however the blade is tall enough to prevent racking your knuckles. 0.3
