As big as a machete. You could fight zombie hordes with this blade... and it cuts homemade bread perfectly. Wickedly sharp.

Best thing since...well, sliced bread.
Wife got me one for Christmas for my home-made (massive) sourdough and country grain loaves. I can't praise this thing highly enough. Its heft is fantastic, the teeth are scary-sharp...and even with my thick-crusted but delicately-crumbed breads, easily paring off anything from a thick to VERY thin slice of an ultra large-diameter loaf is actually a pleasure and marvel. Finally, I feel like I'm doing justice to my breads! Love this knife, just in case it wasn't already obvious. I tend to be nit-picky, but really, there's nothing I can imagine to NOT love about this thing.

So I feel like I'm a character in Star Wars...
I have to laugh every time I use this thing--thought 14 inches was the whole deal, but no, the handle is an extra measure. So I feel like I'm a character in Star Wars when I create a slice of bread. Know this; however-it is a terrific slicer. Follow the suggestion to saw instead of squash your bread-that way, if desired, you can get an even and very thin slice.

We also make a 10" version for the less adventurous.
