The beautiful Shun Classic Chefs Knife in an ashwood-coloured handle isÂ designed specifically to tackle bread. Its sharp, serrated blade cuts through the softest (and hardest) breads with ease and without crushing.
Itâ€™s a crime to ruin a fresh loaf of bread by smashing it beneath the blade of a dull knife. The wide, â€œlow frequencyâ€ serrations on the Shun Classic Bread Knife are not only razor-sharp, but 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. And it works equally well on very soft breads and even pastries. Whether your bread is delicately tender or wonderfully crusty, just gently saw back and forth to cut off the perfect slice of bread with nary an unsightly rip or tear.
