You will need: A bread knife, this is a long, straight knife with a serrated edge and quite a stiff blade. A chopping board. A loaf of bread to slice.
Place the loaf of bread on a chopping board, ensuring it is stable and won't move around. Hold your bread knife with a firm but comfortable grip, making sure the serrated edge is facing downwards. Align the knife above the loaf where you want to make your first cut.
Begin cutting by gently applying downward pressure while moving the knife back and forth in a sawing motion. The key is not to push too hard; let the serrated edge do the work for you. Continue to move the knife back and forth, allowing the serrations to cut through the bread.
Repeat these steps for each subsequent slice, remembering to keep the knife vertical and parallel to the last cut. Tips: Don't rush; take your time to make each slice. It may help to keep your other hand on top of the loaf to stabilise it while you cut.
