Shun Classic 9" Bread Knife

Produced by Japan's leading blade manufacturer, this specialized knife has a scalloped blade that cuts easily through crisp bread crusts without compressing the soft, delicate interiors. VG-MAX "super steel" blade is clad on each side with 16 microthin layers of high-carbon steel, creating a variegated look reminiscent of a Damascus-style blade. Exceedingly sharp cutting edge is long lasting and easy to maintain. Designed to cut easily through the crusts of breads and rolls without squashing the delicate interiors. Durable PakkaWood handle resists moisture and has a D shape, to sit comfortably in the hand. Available in right- and left-handed versions. This NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens. 9"-long blade, 5"-long handle; 6.8 oz. Handcrafted in Japan.

Incredible knife. My only knock is I wish it came in the "Kaji" so that it would match the rest of my set! I love this knife, would buy again, 100%
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Strength, Sharpness, Weight, looks good!

Perfect Bread Knife
February 7, 2011
We've been fighting over who gets to cut the bread with this knife. It's incredibly sharp and very effective with those yummy hard crusted breads. Even thin slices are possible. Take long strokes and let the knife do the work. You'll be surprised at how little damage this knife does to the crust vs. your other knives.

Awesome blade
December 4, 2010
This bread knife is awsome, it is a hot knife cutting through butter.....only, it isn't a hot knife and it is going through bread not butter. Great knife.

Excellent Breadknife
September 2, 2010
This knife is amazing. It slices bread with no effort. You practically have to hold it back. You can slice bread paper thin with it.

fabulous knife
August 17, 2009
This knife is worth its weight in gold. It goes through the hardest loaf as if it were butter. My husband is the bread cutter & he just loves it. We're considering getting other Shun knives.

Worth The Price

Amazing how this knife slices cleanly and quickly through a hard-crusted loaf of artisan bread. The true test is getting super-thin slices without much effort—and the Shun bread knife certainly delivers in spades. Highy recommended!
