The Shun Classic White series with its six selected blade shapes and bright ash wood coloured handle is now an integral element of the Shun Classic series. The light coloured version also combines centuries-old Japanese Samurai blacksmithing with modern and sophisticated manufacturing processes. The result are chef knives, which have been perfected to the smallest detail and consistently designed for continual sharpness - ideal for professional use.
The serrated bread knives are characterised by their sections of grooves that run perpendicular to the blade edge to enable cutting without the use of excessive force. Perfect for cutting through hard crusts of bread loaves, baguettes, bagels, and for soft items such as tomatoes, cakes with fluffy textures; primarily for most foods with a hard exterior but soft interior.
Bread knives do not require any sharpening usually. Should one wish to sharpen a bread knife, this would require the use of a ceramic rod known as a “crock-stick” which enables the sharpening of the serrated grooves segments on the knife’s blade.
