Perhaps, if your knife doesn't have a straight edge, the bread underneath the high spots helps to maintain the pressure on the bacon. If there were just air underneath, the pressure might not be enough to cut. Certainly, I had a concave bit on my chef's knife (I don't have servants, you realise) and, once I had ground it flat, it cut much better.
I think you are fantasizing again.
