This amazing razor-sharp knife is created in Seki City, Japan's 700-year-old center for samurai swords. The "ripple" Damascus rust-free finish is achieved by forging 34 layers of steel on each side. Flexible, stick-resistant blade is stamped, hand-ground to an exceptional 16-degree angle, then hand-polished.

Shun ® Classic 9 Bread Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Great knife. Feels nice to use. Cuts easily through fancy tough crust bread and gently through softer breads without smashing. Love shun!! Wash/dry, and return to knife drawer to avoid it getting beat up on the dryer rack and it still looks brand new about a year later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great splurge I love using this knife. It's very precise and sharp. The hand weight is excellent. Also, the slight offset is perfect. My last bread knife did not have this, and its an important feature of a good knife.Yes, its expensive, but I don't regret purchasing this knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Knife! This knife cuts through bread, bagels, and hard crusted breads like a dream. I have yet to encounter a bread it doesn’t effortlessly glide through. A better knife means smoother cuts, which means less chance for an accident when forcing a knife through a cut. The knife is sturdy, cuts very straight and even, and the handle just has a great feel to it. A great investment for an amateur chef’s kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I don't know a ton about kitchen knives but my fiance swears by these and we use ours often. It has a comfortable grip and cuts clean. We use our Shun knives for just about everything in the kitchen!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really sharp... and expensive. I've had this bread knife for a few months now, so it's gotten a bit of use. like all Shun knives, it has the "D" shaped handle which is really comfortable to use. Also, like all Shun knives is it ridiculously sharp (I just nicked my finger while cutting a bagel and drew blood).The downside is the price. It's a great knife, but I'm not sure it's quite worth the price.I would recommend this to a friend if s/he had to have a shun, but I would also say that you could find a comparable knife at a cheaper price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bread Knife Ever! This Shun Bread Knife cuts so cleanly and easily, I feel like I am cutting through butter each time I use it.I would never switch back to any other sort of bread knife after this one.Shun delivers quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE KNIVES! We have the bread knife and the chefs knife and we ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM! They are well made and do a great job. We keep them working well with the honing steel and they are still working like new almost a year later. Would HIGHLY recommend this brand.
