Premier // Bread 9” Knife
If you bake or buy whole loaves of bread, a bread knife will be one of the most-used knives in your kitchen. Whether you love wonderfully crusty or delicately tender bread, the Shun Premier Bread Knife features razor-sharp, wide, “low frequency” serrations. Unlike a plain-edged knife, the serrations let you gently saw through the bread without crushing and with much less crumbing. Cakes and pastries also benefit from the Shun Premier Bread Knife’s smooth cutting capabilities.
The Shun Premier line calls to mind the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. While each knife still takes at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete, the materials Shun uses are among the most advanced in the industry. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX “super steel” to take and hold a precision edge, while the layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Near the edge of the blade, where the steels meet, an undulating line is formed—similar to the one formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The hammered Tsuchime finish acts like a series of hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag, and the handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.
