Looking for a professional cake knife that is used for torting and leveling cakes. Anyone know where I can get one that is long enough to slice through a 10inch round to tort it? Can't find anything that works in the retail stores.

Those Agbay are gorgeous - but a little more than I need icon_redface.gif is there a type of knife I can purchase?

Thinking of getting an Agbay with tax return $$. I can't cut a cake straight to save my life!
Would love to hear ideas on other knives, though, also.

I use one like this (my DH bought me 8 different knives in a lot on ebay for $1 and this was one of them) I LOVE THIS THING!!!!

Levelers are good if you're just torting but if you're carving you need a knife. I like this one because it's like 14" long (the one I have) and works perfect for carving the whole width of sheet cakes and also the entire height of topsy turvy cakes, etc.

Thanks for the agbay.com suggestion. That is a nice tool. I am only just starting out and don't have a need for something like that , yet (maybe someday icon_smile.gif ) I think I found one from Fat Daddios. Wondered if anyone has used one and if it's a good investment.
