Shun Classic Bread Knife (23cm)
Shun kitchen knives are made using state of the art technology and are highly esteemed all over the world – each Shun knife is handcrafted in Japan and requires at least 100 meticulous steps to complete. The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to hold. The blade, angled at 16°, is known for extreme sharpness and edge retention. Each knife is clad with 16 layers on either side of a core VG-MAX high carbon stainless steel, while the wood grain pattern on the blade helps reduce friction. The D-shaped PakkaWood handle fits firmly in the hand increasing control and stability. 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.
After a chef’s knife and a paring knife, some cooks say that the knife they 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 bread, and it works equally well on very soft breads and even pastries.
