I feel like a dork going to the trouble of asking about a bread knife but I've just had my second disappointing purchase. How hard can it be to cut bread?!
Do you have a good bread knife? What brand is it?

We have the Analon 22cm bread knife and it is fantastic.

Global, pricey but worth every penny.

Check out peters of Kensington they're having a sale

I also recommend they're chefs knives ( we have a 24cm, 13cm & a paring knife)

I found cheap ones suck!
Go to a decent cookware shop or knife shop and spend at least $30 on one. the one I bought recently was around that price and it's a Baccarat Cuisine Pro brand.
It;s nicely heavy, well balanced and cuts really well.

Ours is Global brand. It came in a set with a block as a wedding gift.  It's the best knife, like slicing through butter.
I'm sure you can buy them separately, try Myer.

The best bread knife, or any knife I have ever had is a 'Forever Sharp' knife I got during a demonstration in a Woolworths store. Here is a link to what they look like on ebay here.
