A serrated utility knife has a blade somewhere between a paring knife and a chef’s knife in length – usually four to seven inches. It has a jagged (serrated) edge, like a bread knife, but it is generally shorter and sharper. It’s intended for jobs where a paring knife is too small and a chef’s knife is too big. Its sharp-toothed edge makes it ideal for cutting delicate foods, like tomatoes, without tearing them, or for small cutting jobs like splitting bagels, slicing baguette, or cutting sandwiches. Like other kitchen knives, a serrated utility knife will have a blade made of stainless or high-carbon steel and a handle made of wood, plastic, or laminate. Before buying, consider how durable the blade material is and how comfortable the handle is to hold.
