Just because this 12" CaterLine Black Plastic Bread Knife is a disposable, plastic item doesn't mean it won't do a fantastic job of slicing and cutting through whatever foods you need it for. This item is made from strong, durable polystyrene plastic, so it's made to be able to cut through almost anything. It's great for slicing cakes and breads in clean, neat slices because of the sharpe, serrated blade. You could also use it for carving a whole ham at a carving station. This item is available in a supply of 48 disposable knives per case.
