I tried my hand at baking sourdough bread for the first time yesterday. It came out yummy, but the crust is a bit harder than I wanted. It's so hard that a sharp bread knife has trouble getting through it without a lot of sawing. Hmm...sawing? We have the technology. :D I'm pleased to introduce the Shop Fox W1706 Bread Slicer:

Add a bit of butter and cinnamon sugar, then a few minutes under the broiler, and voila!

You know, I appreciate the overkill approach, but they do have serrated knives meant just for that sort of situation, lol.

Heh, I have the Forschner version of that knife. It took one look at the bread and said "nope!" :D It will actually cut the bread, but the bandsaw was much less effort, even factoring in the time it took to blow the sawdust off the rollers first, lol.
