The Shun Classic Series unites centuries-old Japanese Samurai black-smithing with today's modern and technically-sophisticated manufacturing processes. The result is an exceedingly high-quality range of Damascus knives, engineered with attention to the most minute details and designed to always retain its sharpness. The knives are therefore ideally suited for professional use. The Shun Classic blades are gorgeous to look at due to the distinctive semigloss pattern exhibited by the Damascus steel composite comprising 32 layers.
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.
