    Would you get a bread knife rehandled?

    Hello all,

    Here's an interesting question ... Would you get a bread knife rehandled? Would you view rehandling a bread knife as stupid because bread knives are silly-annoying to resharpen and you'd rather just replace it in X number of years, so why spend the $$? Or maybe you feel like bread knives shouldn't share in the sex appeal of a rehandled gyuto or suji? OR (if you're like me and a home chef), would you consider getting a bread knife rehandled because it's likely that you're bread knife is going to outlive the rest of your knives in terms of how quickly your collection turns over? Just seeing what the thoughts are out there.

    I re-handle everything. And for me a bread knife is not disposable. I have had mine for years.

    One day, I will settle down with a set of knives, like a woman, and have my mix-match set rehandled to all look uniform with each other.

    Are you gonna dress your kids all the same, too? Paint your cars the same? Different rooms in your house? How about your shirts?

    I say, hell yes, rehandle that badboy. Now that I think about it, my breadknife is the oldest knife in my collection, other than my heavy duty Henckels chef.
    Now I want to rehandle mine! Great idea, mon ami.
    On a side note, is it appropriate to rehandle my Dad's old chef knife from 78?

    I don't even understand the question, I think My Guede with koa handles looks real nice. And if you use it mostly for cutting the sponge-like American breads, you will never have to resharpen it and it lasts forever

    So, do I wrap mine with bicycle inner tube rubber, have the handle engraved, dimpled, or otherwise textured....
