Sandwich Knife  
A sharp-bladed kitchen utensil used to slice through a medium amount of food ingredients "sandwiched" between two slices of bread. Similar in use to a deli knife, the Sandwich Knife is shorter in length with a shorter blade depth in order to easily accomplish the cutting task for smaller to medium-sized sandwiches. Sandwich Knives will typically be made from stainless steel with a serrated blade that works best for slicing bread, soft fruits such as peaches, soft vegetables such as tomatoes, and food dishes such as pies, quiches, sandwiches, and pizza. Available in sizes from 6 to 12 inches, the Sandwich Knife is designed to handle small to medium-sized sandwiches with the small to medium blade sizes and larger sandwiches with the larger blade sizes.
