Hey Guys,

I have a broken band saw blade, and instead of throwing it away I was thinking of making a Bow Bread Knife like this:

My question is how long should the blade be?

I’ve never made one but I wouldn’t imagine you would need much more than 12” unless you are cutting really wide loaves.

Most people use a blade specifically designed for bread cutting. Take a look at these.

Good Luck with your project.
