After a chef’s knife and a paring knife, some cooks say that the knife
they most can’t live without is their bread knife. It’s a crime to ruin a
fresh loaf of bread by smashing it beneath the blade of a dull knife.
The wide, “low frequency” serrations on the Shun Classic Bread Knife are
not only razor-sharp, but they do a much better job slicing any type of
bread than a straight-edged knife. The undulating serrations provide
the power you need to gently saw through a crusty loaf without tearing
the tender interior. And it works equally well on very soft breads and
even pastries. Whether your bread is delicately tender or wonderfully
crusty, just gently saw back and forth to cut off the perfect slice of
bread with nary an unsightly rip or tear.
The Shun Classic 9-in. Bread Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of
tasteful and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line features
beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Yet
behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades
offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX
steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus
stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing
pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are
sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.
The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both
traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can
always find the right knife for the task.
