Shun Sora 9" Bread Knife

Overview

Prepare to fall in love with this bread knife. Whether you prefer a rustic, crusty bread or a soft and tender loaf, the Shun Sora Bread Knife will cut through easily to give you the perfect slice of bread every time. What makes this bread knife special - and better - is the way Shun has crafted the serrations. These aren't jagged little teeth that chew through your bread. These are razor-sharp "low-frequency" serrations. These wider serrations glide through the bread with ease. What's more, cutting is even smoother because Shun has designed the serrations so that there's an equal amount of cutting power on the forward stroke and on the back stroke. Look at the blade and you'll see that the serrations lean forward on the front of the blade and backward on the back of the blade. That small change makes a big difference in cutting ease.

Shun Sora Series Features

The Shun Sora Pairing Knife is part of the exciting Shun Sora line that provides exceptional handcrafted Shun quality at an amazing price. Sora uses Shun's proprietary Composite Blade technology to bring together a VG10 san mai cutting edge with a Japanese 420J stainless steel upper. This technology puts high-performance material exactly where it's needed--on the edge. The two blade sections are laser cut, then fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Braze welding permanently joins them. The attractive wavy pattern at the join is based on traditional Japanese sword hamon lines. While sora's blade shapes and handle design are traditional Japanese, the textured PP/TPE polymer blend handle material provides a contemporary look, secure grip and balance, and is easy to maintain.
About Shun

About Shun

Shun in Japanese actually translates to “at the peak of perfection,” and no words could better describe this outstanding company. Renowned for their traditional knife making style and aesthetic design, the highly skilled artisans at the Kai Corporation (the parent company of “Shoon”) have been making blades of the highest quality in homage of the legendary sword smiths of Seki, Japan for over 100 years. Each and every knife is handmade, from beginning to end, requiring at least 100 meticulous steps along the way. It is out of this respect and admiration towards their ancestors, coupled with advanced technology and materials, that Shun produces basically pieces of art that also happen to be razor-sharp knives.
