Britain’s best bread saw. The best bread knife.

The JonoKnife is a handcrafted bread saw; it uses an extra thin Sheffield made blade to slice bread. Slicing the very crusty and the super soft, the JonoKnife is far better than any normal bread knife on the market. Learn more about JonoKnife, the best bread knife below.

Discover the best bread knife

Handcrafted on a small farm in the English countryside; the JonoKnife is inspired by an age-old bow bread saw or fiddle bow knife design from the Appalachian Mountains in America. Hear from our bread saw maker in this exclusive interview.

How our bread saw fiddle bow knife works

The Sheffield made scalloped blade is about 4X thinner than a normal bread knife blade. Because of this it slices soft and fresh breads with hardly any pressure and will cut hard crusty bread like a sourdough easier than you could imagine! Our knives are available in a variety of woods and come in left and right handed versions.

I absolutely love my Jonoknife! Cutting my rustic sourdough loaves is no longer an extreme workout! Seriously this knife cuts bread like it’s going through soft butter. I bought the XL walnut knife, it is beautifully made and simply the best tool for the job.

I ordered the Jonoknife as a gift for my son’s 21st birthday , little did I realize it would engage the whole family. With the ability to slice a loaf longitudinally our toastie experience has been revolutionised.

Thanks for your prompt customer service and great product

I bought a JonoKnife last month and I am so pleased to say that my son, who had coordination and motor skills issues as he has dyspraxia can now cut a bagel, a slice of bread and a slice of cake! We are both thrilled.


My new @jonoknife bread knife arrived today. This thing is a marvel. It cut bread still warm from the breadmaker with no effort at all. It’s the best bread knife I’ve ever had, and it’s shaped like a Bow Saw! They are handmade in the UK as well. It’s fantastic.?



A beautifully crafted knife – you can see that a lot of care has gone into making it – and it slices through my sourdough much more easily than any of the other knives I’ve had. Very happy!

Who knew a bread bow could be so life changing.
In the dark ages this girl could not simply cut a slice of bread…. more like a massacre ending in a wedge shaped bread mass. Not now! Welcome to perfectly sliced bread every time!

Great product, great service! 10/10

This knife is absolutely superb. I am a coeliac and  gluten free bread is always terribly hard to cut straight slices without the whole thing turning to breadcrumbs. No such problem for the Jonoknife! Thin, even slices are as easy to achieve as cutting butter. My bread is so expensive, so my investment will pay for itself in no time.  Brilliant!

Love my new Jono Knife – the first slice was a “wow” moment! Perfect for my sourdough loaves. Very quick service – I purchased it on a Saturday afternoon and it arrived in Switzerland by the Friday! Jonathan’s helpful and prompt advice was appreciated before I made my purchase. I ordered the XL walnut – my only regret is I didn’t get it engraved :)

We purchased a JonoKnife about 12 months ago, and it is brilliant and maintained its utility over time. Bread and other things are cut effortlessly. Guests to our home have been impressed, too, and commented on its aesthetics and functionality. We won’t need to buy one again, as it remains so sharp, but if we lost it, we most definitely would.
