Thread: Appellation Bread Knife

  1. #1

    Default Appellation Bread Knife

    Having seen a small version for cheese and meats, I was reminded of the bow saw type knife by an item on this weeks Countryfile on the BBC, http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08r89xt which featured a craftsman making them fir bread. I thought finding the blades to try making my own as a project would be easy.... Despite searching the net, I can only find one supplier of the blades on fleabay, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bow-Bread-.../351183911335? And he does not ship internationally!

    So so does anyone have any information on where to get a couple of these blades to make what looks like an old Appellation style knife?

    I don't have a clue about the knife, but you might do better googling "Appalachian" if it's anything to do with the American mountain region

    Pretty new to me too. We have a breadknife which has the serrations cut on one side only although I never noticed or thought anything about it. ~If I use it without thinking it never cuts the bread straight. Never thought about it until step daughter pointed it out to me.....

    Going a little off topic.....

    These are great from Buck........a buck spreader.........flexible blade about 5 inches long.......excellent for cutting bread, as a steak knife and spreading......is also wide enough to use as a spatula. The fork thingy is useable....just

    I was disappointed by this thread.

    When I saw the title I thought it was something the vein of Operation Stiletto or Agent Dagger!

    What a let down.

    Would a hacksaw blade not do as well?

    Thanks for posting that pic Mayobren, it looks the perfect canoeing picnic knife. I'd been using my safety knife which i know is a really bad idea but have recently replaced it and this will help stop my bad habit

    I don't carry bread in the backcountry - takes too much space & is too fragile (and I don't really like bread anyway...) - but, you guys do know it comes already sliced nowadays, right??
