Ever tried to slice up a ripe tomatoe with a straight knife ? Pain in the petunia unless you really know how to sharpen the knife to a razor like sharpness. Of course you would NEVER use a serrated knife for cutting meat products.
Cutting fresh bread is another thing that is tough to do with straight knives.
