The Shun Reserve 9" Bread Knife features an impressively hard micro-carbide steel core and is crafted using the Japanese Kasumi tradition of knife-making. This long, elegant blade readily manages crusty breads and thick, tough rinds with its wide, low-frequency serrations. Whether the loaf is tender and delicate or crunchy and crusty, this is the ideal knife for slicing breads of all kinds effortlessly without ripping, crushing, or tearing. The Shun Reserve 9” Bread Knife has the length to handle the largest loaves, sandwiches, and even winter squash effortlessly.
The strong core of the Shun Reserve 9" Bread Knife is made from the very fine-grained SG2 steel and supported by sixteen shiny layers of nickel silver stainless steel on each side. Sharpened to a 16˚ flat ground cutting angle each side, the resulting blade holds a very fine edge and delivers edge retention without equal. The Shun Reserve 9" Bread Knife is constructed with a full-tang and a heftier blade for perfect Western-style balance, providing precision and power within a gracefully beautiful visage.
The handle of a Shun Reserve knife is crafted with crimson-and-charcoal PakkaWood, Shun’s resin-treated hardwood that merges the inherent beauty of wood with durable plastic for exceptional moisture resistance and enduring strength. The ambidextrous, contoured handle nestles comfortably within the grip of your hand and is secured with triple rivets for reliable assembly. For the most enhanced edge retention, hand-wash the Shun Reserve 9" Bread Knife.
