After a chef's knife and a paring knife, some cooks say that the knife they cannot live without is their bread knife. If you are looking for a new bread knife, this blonde-handled version of Shun's Classic Bread Knife is a beautiful choice. Don't ruin a fresh loaf of bread by squashing it beneath the blade of a dull knife. Instead, use the wide, serrations of the Shun Classic Blonde Bread Knife to simply glide through crusty or tender bread. The undulating serrations provide the power you need to gently saw through a crusty loaf without tearing the tender interior. And it works equally well on very soft breads and even pastries.
Slice tender or crusty breads with no ripping, squashing, or tearing
