    WTB: Gude bread knife

    I admit, I want to try one of the Gude bread swords. Anyone have one they might part with? I'd be up for partial-trading a MAC bread knife if you're interested...

    I also looked for one of these for years...
    It's the most absurd knife I own. It's funny that the best zombie weapon in my kitchen is a bread knife.

    It's a very specialized knife though: it really only shines on very heavily armored breads. For probably 90% of baked goods, the tojiro ITK bread knife cuts noticeably better -not to mention it's much kinder to the cutting board.

    Still, I gave my ITK away when I finally found a Gude 2 handed breadsword, because more practical or not, I knew it would not see much use.

    I don't think that I'll ever sell mine, but I'd do a pass around... you 2 would certainly have spots on the list once I get my act together and start the thread.

    As a wine lover, I would pick the barrel oak option for sure.

    I've often considered this for a custom knife handle. I also think the inside of the barrel staves, stained with wine, would make a very cool one.

    Yep don't own a bread knife, so if I did it would be the 32cm one just because.

    I bought my 240 mm Franz Gude bread knife in 2008 for $65 from Lehman's in Ohio. It's still in stock but now $80.

    I know a lot of guys are in awe of the mammoth 320 mm size, but with knives that are actually used, practicality plays a role and I've never wished for a longer version.
