Description

SPECIAL VALUE The offset blade position of this bread knife creates additional knuckle clearance and perfectly positions your hand for a more powerful—and thus easier—cut. The scalloped serrations will slice neatly into even the toughest crusted loaves without skidding. Plus the knife glides through bread without shredding, delivering perfect slices with fewer crumbs.

Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary design features a beautiful Damascus-clad blade and D-shaped ebony pakkawood handle. Behind the knife’s beauty is function: a razor-sharp blade offering precision performance.

Shun Classic knives feature a core of proprietary VG-MAX super steel clad on both sides with 34 layers of Damascus stainless steel. The woodgrain pattern of the steel allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is a knife that’s sharp, durable and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.

NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens.

The most incredible bread knife you'll use!
Shun has a reputation for beauty combined with quality. I have several knives at home by different manufacturers- though every night I find myself reaching for my Shun Classic knives when cooking. My absolute favorite is the off-set bread. Not just a bread knife, but an all purpose utility, it can core a tomato with tip, slicing it effortlessly. Slicing through bread is almost a joke. The best part is that because of the off-set angle, your knuckles won't hit the board when slicing down. Awesome, awesome piece

"Pricey, but so worth it"
This knife was recommended to round out my collection by two chefs during a knife skills course I took . It took me a while to purchase it, as it is a little pricey, but oh my goodness, does it do the job. I made Irish soda bread last weekend for brunch, which most knives turn into crumbles. This sliced through straight and clean like it was butter, leaving no crumbs at all! After that, I stopped worrying about the cost, it is just as impressive as the claims. The offset protecting your knuckles is just the gravy

What is the exact blade length?

Not the length of the entire knife
A shopper on Sep 28, 2011
Best Answer: Originating in Seki City, Japan’s historical center for manufacturing samurai swords, Shun knives are heirs to a seven-century tradition of superior workmanship. Every Shun knife is an outstanding example of form fulfilling function. Both sides of its exquisitely forged VG-10 “super steel” blade are clad with 16 layers of high-carbon stainless steel to produce a rust-free Damascus steel surface. The blade of the offset bread knife reduces sticking and sinks into food so efficiently that a light touch is all that’s necessary. Every Shun knife has a D-shaped handle for maximum comfort and efficiency. The blade on this bread knife is 9" long. That does not include the handle.
