The finish was rough, band saw blade marks were still visible. After some hand sanding, it feels smooth but the handle is a little too short. The wood had not been thoroughly treated with an oil as it soak up oil as soon as I applied some. A slightly longer handle, and little extra work and care would make this a very nice bread knife.
Thanks James for your feedback about the Artisan Fiddle Bow Bread Knife. We really appreciate it. And thanks for supporting local artisans and small businesses. It makes a big difference.
I love the wood, but not happy with the screws. Crooked and stick out. On some of the pictures it shows rounded screws which I think would be better
Thanks for your feedback Melissa. Please note that the screws are put in by the maker at an angle to hold the blade tightly in place. Thanks too for supporting local artisans and small businesses. It makes a big difference.
Used the small dibble for planting the summer crop. I anticipate it to help me plant many more seasons’ worth of crops.
Thanks William for the review and for supporting local artisans and small businesses. We're glad you were able to use your Artisan Garden Dibbles for planting and will get many years out of them. Enjoy!
Perfect for slicing your bread really thin. I am on a low carb diet and I can cut the carbs in half
Thanks for your review Julie and for supporting local artisans and small businesses. We're glad the Artisan Fiddle Bow Bread Knife is helping to slice bread thin for your low carb diet! Enjoy.
i’m sorry to have to give a negative review but this item was poorly made. the screws were in crooked, the blade is cheap & crooked & the wood split. i sent it back & await my refund.
Hi Lisa. Thanks for your review. We have processed your refund and will forward your feedback to the maker. Please do note that the screws are put in at an angle to hold the blade taught. And the blade is attached 'crooked' on purpose for the best angle to contact and cut the loaf. Thanks too for supporting local artisans and small businesses. It makes a big difference.
