hi, what is best knife to slice (fresh/defrosted) bagel? Also it is sharpenable/serrated?
As you know bagel is "soft," not hard. My German bread knife doesn't cut this well.

I use a shun off set serrated bread knife or my sujihiki. Really any knife will do as long as its sharp.

A nice, sharp, thin knife should slice bagels like buttah. However, if you are looking for a great bread knife, the Tojiro ITK bread knife is a nice performer for the money: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/toitkbrkn.html. At it's current sale price - it's REALLY nice for the money. The Tojiro has more scalloped serrations which can be sharpened on the edge of a standard sharpening stone. Video which shows this: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/nuume5kst.html

I am having good luck with the Tojiro ITK bread knife with bagels (clean cuts, no crushing, no crumbs), but keep in mind that though I eat a lot of bagels I am a home user and have had the knife for a few weeks, so that doesn't tell you how it holds up or how resharpenable it is.

As long as you're not grinding the edge into the cutting board, you'll be able to cut a LOT of bagels before the edge dulls enough for a resharpen. Check out the video on the product page I posted above. Ken shows a great way to effectively sharpen the Tojiro on the edge of a stone.

Is the Mac Superior bread knife the same as the ITK bread knife in this respect? I received one as a gift and I love it, but I haven't had to worry about sharpening it yet.

I have cut about a million bagels successfully with the Dexter offset handle serrated bread knives. I use the backwards idahone sharpening method when needed with much success

Been cutting a few bagels a day this week and on Jeff's suggestion I started using my gyuto, if it was out, or my petty if I had to get a knife out for it. Works like a dream.
