Have you ever found yourself hovering over the edge of the cutting board so that you don't knock your knuckles on the board as you reach the bottom of the stroke? The Shun Offset Bread knife solves the problem. The offset blade position creates additional knuckle clearance and perfectly positions your hand for a more powerful—and thus, easier—cut. The scalloped serrations will slice neatly into your loaf without skidding; no matter how crusty it is. You'll also enjoy the way the knife glides through bread without shredding and with fewer crumbs.
Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary designs feature beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Behind the knives’ beauty is a function: razor-sharp blades offering the most extreme performance possible. Shun’s VG10 steel, known for its incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, creating a woodgrain pattern that allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion-resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. Shun Classic also offers the widest assortment of both traditional blade shapes and cutting edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
