Consider that it may be neither the bread nor the knife, but the person doing the cutting.
Generally speaking, wait until the bread is cold, lay the loaf on it's side, and let the knife do the work. If the knife is sharp enough, it should cut through with minimal pressure.
If the problem however is the uneven-ness of the slices, that has nothing to do with the knife. There are bread slicing guides you can buy that you set the loaf into and slice where they show you. There are also special knives with guards on them so that when you line the guard up with the end of the loaf on each slice, they're all the same width. Or you can just practice. Practice, practice, practice. Just like slicing a roast or carving a turkey, the more you practice the better you'll get.
