    The Wavy , scalloped , serrated edge.

    I was looking through some antique malls here and asking about knives not much luck but i did see a bread knife with a wavy edge made out of a hand saw and the top was the saw blade sort of like this but the serrated saw edge on the spine .

    And i noticed that the that shape was not any thing new.

    That top one looks like the brainchild of a knut from around here. Sinus serrations, kiritsuke tip, and nogent handle on a carbon steel bread knife.

    F.Dick
    Bauhaus Knives

    Our two very unusual F.Dick Bauhaus knives are new releases of the original 1912 versions. Their striking Bauhaus design reflects the functionalism and tubular steel element that defined the Bauhaus movement from Germany in the early part of the twentieth century. Even today, these Bauhaus knives seem to be ahead of their times

    on vintage and antique bread knives, my understanding was the big wavy scalloped edge was for softer sandwich breads, like white bread and brioche and the saw toothed edges were for hard crusty breads, like baguettes
    and boules.
