Shun Premier 9" Bread Knife

Product Description
$277.00 CAD

Prepare to fall in love with this bread knife. Whether you prefer a rustic, crusty bread or a soft and tender loaf, the Shun Premier Bread Knife will cut through easily to give you the perfect slice of bread every time. What makes this bread knife special—and better—is the way Shun has crafted the serrations. These aren't jagged little teeth that chew through your bread. These are razor-sharp "low-frequency" serrations. These wider serrations glide through the bread with ease allowing for a smooth cut without tearing.

 

The Shun Premier line calls to mind the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. Each knife takes at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete, and the materials Shun uses are among the most advanced in the industry. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX “super steel” to take and hold a precision edge. The layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Near the edge of the blade, where the steels meet, an undulating line is formed—similar to the hamon formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The hammered tsuchime finish acts like a series of hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag and prevent sticking. The handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.
