Our exclusive Shun Hiro collection features high-performance Eastern-style knives designed for speed, agility and balance as well as striking beauty. A cutting core of ultra-premium SG-2 steel creates a super-sharp, lasting edge, and the hammered blade helps keep foods from sticking for fast, efficient use. This bread knife's serrated blade slices through the largest loaves without tearing. Eastern-inspired design with extremely thin, lightweight blade for fast and agile performance. The blade's core of SG-2 powdered steel is clad on each side with Damascus steel composed of 32 alternating layers of nickel and stainless steel, for a total of 65 layers. SG-2 is an extremely fine-grained, dense and hard steel, which enables it to take and hold an exquisitely fine edge with long-lasting sharpness. The hammered pattern (tsuchime in Japanese) helps the blade pass easily through food without sticking. Contoured, ambidextrous handle is designed for ultimate comfort and control. Handle is made of dark, charcoal-colored PakkaWood with crimson striations and an inlaid-mosaic Samurai family crest. Polished-nickel bolster and end cap. 9"-long blade; 4 3/4" handle; 7 oz. Handcrafted in Japan. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
