Shun - Classic 9" Bread Knife - DM0705
Shun classics are the origiginal Shuns, the first Japanese-style knives to be made available to a wider audience in North America. Instead of heavy, ponderous blades, Shun Classic blades are lighter with razor-sharp edges and crafted from advanced steel. Rather than weight, Western handles, Shun Classic offers the graceful control of a traditional Japanese handle.
After a chef’s knife and a paring knife, some cooks say that the knife they most can’t live without is their bread knife. It’s a crime to ruin a fresh loaf of bread by smashing it beneath the blade of a dull knife. The wide, “low frequency” serrations on the Shun Classic Bread Knife are razor-sharp, and they do a much better job slicing any type of bread than a straight-edged knife. The undulating serrations provide the power you need to gently saw through a crusty loaf without tearing the tender interior. It works equally well on very soft breads and even pastries. Whether your bread is delicately tender or wonderfully crusty, saw gently back and forth to cut off the perfect slice of bread without an unsightly rip or tear.
