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 handle 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.The Shun Classic Offset Bread knife works equally well on tender desserts such as angel food cake, enabling you to create beautiful, tear-free slices.
The Shun Classic Offset Bread Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.
