Shun Fuji Bread Knife

The cutting edge of this knife features serrations that point in two different directions, which creates an ultrasmooth push/pull motion for slicing through loaves of bread without tearing the delicate crumb. Inspired by the high-performance knives used by Japanese chefs, our exclusive Shun Fuji collection represents the very best in cutlery craftsmanship and technology. Developed for the experienced cook who prefers the lightness and razor sharpness of Eastern-style blades. The blade's core of SG2 steel is clad on each side with Damascus steel composed of 80 alternating layers of nickel and stainless steel. Resulting 161-layer blade is thin and light yet strong and hard, with a supersharp cutting edge. Handle is dark tagayasan wood, or "iron sword wood," an extremely dense wood traditionally used in Japan to make samurai sword handles. The double-D handle shape has finger ridges on both sides for a comfortable, ambidextrous grip. End cap made of polished Damascus steel. Shun Fuji collection won the "Kitchen Knife of the Year Award" at the U.S. 2011 Blade Show for the best in new product quality and design. Handcrafted in Japan. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

I enjoy the knife
January 12, 2013
The Shun Fuji line is very good quality. The knives are light and balanced. They have a good feel in the hand. I have several Shun Fuji knives and the only issue I have had is tips slightly bending on the ones like the paring or utility that have a narrow tip.
Pros: Balance, Weight
Cons: Fragile
