What a beautiful way to slice a loaf of bread. The Shun Reserve Bread Knife, with its wide, "low frequency" serrations, will do a much better job of slicing any type of bread than a straight-edged knife. There's no crushing, no tearing; just beautiful slices, whether you're making thin or thick slices.
The Shun Reserve Bread Knife is part of the Shun Reserve line, a masterful blend of graceful beauty and impeccable performance. Shun Reserve knives are full-tang Western-style kitchen tools clad with 32 layers of flowing "ladder" Damascus on each side of the blade for a total of 64 layers of cladding. Yet as beautiful as this elegant Damascus is, it is Reserve's SG2 steel cutting core that makes it truly remarkable. This ultra-fine-grained steel is incredibly hard and dense - enabling Shun to make thinner blades that can be sharpened to a razor-like 16° angle. At the same time, SG2 offers unmatched edge retention. Shun Reserve offers the strength and perfectly balanced weight that Western-style knife lovers prefer. Full-tang, riveted construction provides a heftier blade that delivers both power and precision. Exceptionally beautiful, Shun Reserve knives offer supreme performance and are a pleasure to use.
