Utility knives

Utility knives can have a multitude of different names, including serrated utility knife, flexible serrated knife, tomato knife or even sandwich knife. That gives you some indication of just how useful a utility knife is!

This type of knife looks like a smaller version of a bread knife, often but not always with a serrated blade between four and seven inches in length.

It’s great for slicing through fruits and vegetables without tearing and for smaller bread items such as bagels or sandwiches.

It’s also perfect for peeling oranges and other citrus fruit as the serrated blade will help grip as it cuts.
