Starting with an exceptionally hard core of VG10 steel, the Shun Classic 8.25” Offset Bread Knife is crafted using traditional Japanese knife-making techniques. Its specialized edge is ideal for bread, sandwiches and more. The wavy, scalloped serrations adeptly slice through crusty loaves and thick rinds with no skidding, no shredding and fewer crumbs. The offset handle provides extra clearance to ensure your knuckles won’t hit the cutting board as you slice with a more powerful and easier cut. This fine blade excels with tall sandwiches, bagels, baguettes and panini, and is also suitable for meats, pineapple, and ripe tomatoes.
The blade of the Shun Classic 8.25” Offset Bread Knife is masterfully created utilizing the Kasumi method of making blades, its strong core supported by thirty-two layers of Damascus cladding, sixteen on each side. This process allows the blade to slice and glide more easily through foods, and leaves an intriguing rippled pattern across the blade known as suminigashi or “ink pattern.” The razor-sharp blade offers extraordinary performance and edge retention, and the full tang provides notable strength and balance.
Shun’s ebony-black PakkaWood is fabricated from resin-treated hardwood and used to form the D-shaped handle that fits securely and naturally in your palm. Sanded and buffed to a smooth, glossy finish, the handle of the Shun Classic 8.25” Offset Bread Knife displays a refined, contemporary aesthetic and delivers superb durability and moisture resistance. Shun cutlery should be hand-washed for best edge retention.
