Bread can be flaky and very difficult to cut through with most knives, except a bread knife. The scalloped blade will slice through bread without mashing it, and make sure to cut in a sawing motion to get the clean cut you desire. The sharp points on the edge are what allow the blade to cut through bread so easily by breaking through the crust. Straight edge knives will push down on the bread and never break the surface. You will find that Dexter Russell bread knives have either a classic knife handle or an offset handle which keeps your knuckle from getting in the way while slicing. They are especially useful for foods with waxy skin like tomatoes and peppers because the scalloped edge can grip the skin where a straight edge knife might slip.
