    I use an electric knife when cutting soft fresh bread - the cutting action has two blades always working in opposite directions from each other, which both avoids tearing the bread and makes it much easier to cut in a straight and controlled way. There's also no problem cutting a loaf whilst still warm.

    I use a very sharp (and sharpened on a stone before each loaf) large (non serrated) carving knife. The bread knife just reduces most of it to crumbs, but a very sharp decent quality carving knife is perfect.
    Those who think they know it all are very annoying to those of us who actually do.

    I never have but that is new to me so I'd be interested to hear if anyone does this too.

    Yep an electric knife would be a great purchase if making fresh bread! Much easier to slice - less wastage/crumbs!

    Isn't an electric knife usually a serrated blade though? I've never found a serrated blade a lot of good. Just rips it up.

    Yes they're serrated but there are two blades - you don't get any shear effect overall because the direction of one blade cancels the direction of the other blade.
