Shun Classic Offset 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 delicate interiors. An offset handle provides optimal leverage and keeps knuckles out of harm's way. VG-MAX "super steel" blades are clad on each side with 69 microthin layers of stainless 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. Handcrafted in Japan.

This is one sharp knife!

This is an odd looking knife but oh so good! I already own several Shun Classic knives and this offset bread knife is a welcome addition. The weight and balance of this Shun feels perfect for my hand.
Great for slicing super thin slices of tomatoes, to cut up biscotti or brownies, and of course bread. Will try carving a Prime Rib with it next. Am sure it will sail thru that job too.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Sharpness, Weight
