Product Description

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.

From the Manufacturer

Shun Classic Cutlery

Why Buy Shun Classic:

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.

NSF certified for use in commercial kitchens.

Detailed Features

  • Blade core consists of high-carbon VG-10, a Japanese super steel known for its edge retention, allowing the knives to hold their sharp edges for years.
  • Blades boast a 16-degree angle, making these the sharpest knives out of the box. This is sharper than traditional European blades, which are usually sharpened to 20-22 degrees.
  • Clad with 16 layers of SUS410/SUS431 Pattern Damascus stainless steel on each side for strength and flexibility. This metal is corrosion-resistant and easy to maintain.
  • Damascus styling adds to the beauty of the knife while the microscopic air pockets created by the cladding process reduces friction during slicing.
  • D-shaped handle fits in the palm and provides comfort and control, keeping the knife's handle secure in the hand during use.
  • Available standard in D-shaped handle styles or by special order in reverse D-shaped handle styles.
  • Pakkawood handles, made of resin-impregnated hardwood, are NSF Certified for use in commercial kitchens.
  • Produced in Seki City, Japan, the capital of samurai sword manufacturing.
  • Rockwell hardness rating of 60-61 ensures that it takes and holds its incredibly sharp edge longer.
  • Hand wash and dry recommended; limited lifetime warranty.

This is the best bread knife I have ever owned. Almost all of the knives I use for work are Japanese steel. It cuts through soft fleshed fruits and vegetables for example tomatoes, like a hot knife through butter. Cuts through croissants like a dream, and slices hard crusty breads like baguettes, ciabatta, and other artisan breads as if nothing was there. I would highly recommend purchasing this knife.

This is a wonderful knife and it is one of my three primary prep and line knifes, however it has its draw backs.

Pros:
-Great steel
-Great look
-Holds an edge well
Cons:
-Almost too heavy, a little cumbersome
-Feels akward
-Not well balanced
-Hard to sharpen

I would recommend this knife but i would do so with caution because it take s some time to get use to the way it handles. Although most offset knifes take some time to get use too. I dont know what i would do with out it but it is out of love that i can point out its faults.

This is an excellent knife and complements a number of other knives I have extremely well.

It cuts with a degree of precision that I have just not found with other bread knives (and I have used most of the well-known brands) which can sometimes be too flimsy and move around when cutting bread with a hard crust such as a good sour-dough loaf or they are too thick or become blunt too easily. Also being offset has distinct advantages particularly in not hitting your knuckles when slicing.

This knife is one of the workhorses in my cooking exploits and having a reliable knife that cuts consistently across many bread/cakes types is really helpful whether it is a hard crust loaf as mentioned above or it is a cake I am slicing horizontally to fill with fresh cream and fruit this knife is always a delight to use.

Even my wife who is not particularly interested in knifes and cooking loves to use this knife and have said on more than one occasion that this is the best knife we own.

Simply it is a delight to use and has that added advantage of being beautiful to look at as well as being part of the truly excellent Shun knife range.

If I had to limit myself to three knives then this would certainly be one of the three (fortunately I don't).

Highly recommended!

This knife is an excellent tool. It looks stunning, and does exactly what it's supposed to. I've tried bread knives that aren't offset, and dislike them because your hand always hits the board before you've cut all the way through. With an offset knife this isn't a problem plus you can cut faster because you don't have to worry about your hand getting in the way. Shun makes excellent knives and this is no exception.

I suppose some knife purists will shun this review (sorry), but this off-set beauty is not just a bread knife! I find it a fabulous multifunctional tool in the kitchen. I just wish they made it left handed. I'm ambidextrous and half my knives are lefties...I'd have probably bought one of each, this is so very useful. The Shun Classics are excellent knives. This knife is serrated, so doesn't apply, but for the rest of the collection, let me just caution you; if you do your own knife care, like I do, Shun Classics have a specific non-standard 16 degree angle so sharpening them yourself takes skill and attention. Of course, free sharpening is offered (google it!) These knives are described as dishwasher safe because both types of steel are stainless, so probably so...but leave water or another substance sitting on them and see the damage (rust, discoloration, etc.) My Shun Classics are precious, so I don't risk it.

This is an oddly shaped knife that demonstrates that form does indeed follow function. The offset handle allows one to cut loaves without banging ones fingers on the support. Sharp as a knife can get! Works very well with even the hardest of crusts.

Gave this a gift to my husband who loves to bake bread. He has a global bread knife, but this one cuts so much better. It helps him cut nice slices of bread without crushing the loaf.

Best bread knife I've ever used. Cuts like a charm, offset is just the right amount, the handle is comfortable and Shun will resharpen them free once a year.
