Americas Test Kitchen rated a Mercer bread knife as a best buy. They typically do a good job and will consider price. I bought one, my girlfriend is an incredible baker and it gets used often. When I wanted a breaking knife for trimming briskets for the smoker I bought another Mercer. I decided to get another Mercer chef's knife to fill in the order (Webstaurant.com has good prices, but have a good list since shipping is a bit high, IMHO) they have all been excellent knives. I run the breaking knife and chef's knife across a whetstone every couple weeks. Will put them up against my Zwilling Pro knife ($150 from Sur La Table) any day of the week. Webstaurant.com and Katom.com sell Mercer. Just me two cents.

Those style knives just feel weird to me.

I run across them every once in a while at the thrifts. Not sure if I have one, might have to look and see. I think I might have a carbon steel one.

Knowing what it is used for may make a difference.
