A LON'G-FELT NEED TO HOUSEKEEPERS.
Cut herewith represents our Bread Knife, which as will be observed,
has a scalloped or serrated edge, as has also the Cake Knife, which adds
greatly to cutting quality of the knivoa. and is therefore a vast improvement
over the knife with a plain smooth edge. . . ......
With the Bread Knife, warm bread can be eut as easily as cold, always
leaving a nice even surfaco to the bread. It is also, found' quite nsefnl ia
