Shun Shun Premier Bread Knife

Ultra-sharp, wide reverse serrations gently glide through breads without tearing or crushing. The 9 1/2" Shun Premier Bread Knife is meticulously handcrafted in Japan. With ultimate slicing ease, the Shun bread knife slices through any type...s of bread. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX "super steel" to take and hold a precision edge. The layered Damascus cladding with 68 outer layers (34 per side) supports the core, helps in food release and provides additional stain resistance. The hammered tsuchime finish features a textured pattern that reduces drag and helps prevent foods from sticking to the blade. The walnut PakkaWood handle is infused with a water-resistant resin and contours to comfortably nestle in the hand. Beautiful, stain- and rust-resistant Shun knives take at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete and resemble hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. Elegantly boxed for gift giving. Shun (pronounced: Shoon) is Japanese for "at the peak of perfection." The Shun brand, made by the Kai Corporation, one of Japan's preeminent blade manufacturers introduced its exquisitely styled and exceptionally sharp Japanese-style knives to American kitchens in 2002. Compared to European and Western knives, Shun knives have lighter, thinner blades made of harder steel and honed to superior sharpness. Shun Premier knives reflect the Shun's renowned craftsmanship and centuries-old Japanese knife making traditions. Product Features?
