Shun Premier Bread Knife

The Shun Premier collection is distinguished by hand-hammered blades and walnut-colored PakkaWood handles that evoke the artistry of traditional hand-forged knives. Hand-crafted in Japan, the blades are thin and lightweight. This long, serrated bread knife has a thin, razor-sharp blade for cutting quickly and cleanly through even the crustiest loaves of bread. Blades feature a core of VG-10 "super steel" clad on each side with 69 microthin layers of stainless-steel. The striking hand-hammered finish (tsuchime in Japanese) reduces drag when cutting and helps to quickly release food from the blade. Walnut-finish PakkaWood handles have a two-position design, providing a trigger grip for pull cuts and the perfect balance point for a pinch grip. Stainless-steel end caps embossed with the Shun logo add stability, strength and wide weight distribution from end to end.

I bought this for my husband (not from WS) for his birthday 3 years ago. It still glides through breads with no pressure applied. It has never smooshed a bread down, you don't have to saw through thick crusts, and it looks beautiful! I love having it out on the table whether we have guests or it's just us. The only possible down side was that is was a bit wider than the bread slot in our knife block so we had to reorganize, probably not a problem with shun blocks but we have a cabinet under-mount wusthof. I'm giving one as a wedding present, it's nice to know that the couple will have it forever!
