A convenient addition to any cutlery collection, this user-friendly bread knife by Shun Classic features a serrated blade that measures 8 inches long. Use the knife to effortlessly slice anything from rustic artisan breads and baguettes to dessert items like angel food cake or chocolate tart. The knife creates clean cuts with no tearing or crushing of food to worry about. Even more, its offset stainless-steel bolster keeps knuckles safe and allows for enhanced comfort and control. Overall, the offset bread knife measures approximately 15-1/2 by 3 by 1 inches.
Like other knives in Shun's Classic collection, the knife comes precision-forged in Japan by renowned blade manufacturer KAI. Its eye-catching beauty starts with a VG-10 stainless-steel blade, which features 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side, producing a 33 layered Damascus look, but without the rusting problems associated with Damascus. The Damascus detailing not only enhances the knife's aesthetic appeal, but it also prevents morsels from sticking and helps maintain the integrity of food when slicing. The knife's sleek good looks continue on into its handle. Offering a D-shaped design, the unique ebony Pakkawood handle consists of a fused blend of hardwood veneers and resin to exceptionally noteworthy results. Its steel end-cap offers an attractive finishing touch, and the knife carries a limited lifetime warranty. Though dishwasher-safe, Shun recommends washing the knife by hand for best results.
Born of the ancient samurai-sword-making tradition and hand-finished for precision and beauty, Shun Classic is an ideal choice for anyone buying their first Japanese knife or 50th. The high-quality line of cutlery makes a worthwhile addition to any chef's arsenal of tools--it's used by professional chefs and home cooks alike. Produced in the widest variety of specialized styles, the Classic line features both traditional European blade shapes and innovative cutting-edge designs.
Shun Classic's amazingly sharp blade is famous for both edge retention and ease of sharpening. Each blade has a core of VG-10 "Super Steel" with a Pattern Damascus cladding of 32 layers of high-carbon stainless steel--16 layers on either side. While the wood grain pattern enhances the knife's beauty, it also adds durability and stain resistance, and reduces friction when cutting.
|Blade Material:||VG-10 hardened Japanese steel cutting core, clad with 16 layers of SUS410/SUS431 Pattern Damascus stainless steel on each side, for a total of 33 layers of metal.|
|Cutting angle:||16 degrees per side (comprehensive angle 32 degrees). This is sharper than European knives, ground to 20-22 degrees per side.|
|Handle Material:||PakkaWood (resin-impregnated hardwood); D-Shaped handle available in right and (by special order) left-handed versions.|
|Sharpening recommendations:||Weekly honing to maintain the blade, sharpening as needed with professional sharpener or Asian-style electric sharpener.|

This is a great bread knife--perhaps the best knife of any kind that I ever used. Our other knives are mostly Wüsthof, and I like those a lot. Read morePublished on December 9, 2012 by Jonathan A Feist
This knife cuts through everything. I love using it for bread, and other things when my chef knife is being used by someone else.Published on October 17, 2011 by T. Ostergren
I own a few custom Japanese knives I bought in Japan and this Shun is a great bread knife (Saji, Shikin Tanuka). Sharp out of the box and well made. Read morePublished on February 26, 2011 by C. Williams
I've had this offset bread knife for about a year, and every time I am forced to use a lesser bread knife elsewhere, I can really tell the difference. Read morePublished on January 12, 2011 by C. Marcet
