Description: Bread knives are serrated for easy slicing through loaves of bread. They are also great for slicing pastries, tomatoes, and roasts.
Handcrafted by expert artisans in Seki City, Japan, Shun Premier knives combine elegance and functionality. A stainless steel VG-10 center core (Jigane) is clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side. VG-10 "super steel" is composed of carbon, chromium, cobalt, manganese, molybdenum, silicon and vanadium, resulting in a long-lasting, high-performance edge with easy maintenance. The hand-hammered finish (known as 'tsuchime' in Japanese) lends not only to the beauty, but reduces knife-drag and prevents food from sticking to the blade. The ultra-thin cutting edge has an exceptional edge. The premium walnut toned pakkawood handle nestles comfortably into the curves of the palm and allows for a variety of comfortable and secure grips. Hand wash recommended.
