9" Bread Knife - Shun Kazahana
9″ Bread Knife
SLICE THROUGH ANY TYPE OF LOAF, WITHOUT TEARING
If you bake or buy whole loaves of bread, a bread knife will be one of the most-used knives in your kitchen. Whether you love wonderfully crusty or delicately tender bread, the Shun Kazahana Bread Knife will be your loaf’s new best friend, no matter what its texture. The key is Shun’s razor-sharp, wide, “low frequency” serrations. Unlike a plain-edged knife, the serrations let you gently saw through the bread without crushing and with much less crumbing. Unlike saw tooth serrations that are spaced closer together, the Shun Premier Bread Knife’s wide serrations will gently glide through the bread without tearing. This keeps the bread’s texture intact and enhances eating pleasure. Cakes and pastries also benefit from the Shun Kazahana Bread Knife’s smooth cutting capabilities.
SHUN KAZAHANA LINE—
In Japanese, “Kazahana” means “snow that flickers like petals dancing in a clear sky. Influenced by a Kanso design principle based on the Zen philosophy of simplicity, the Shun Kazahana collection was designed with only the indispensable elements in mind. Plainly put: with these knives, nothing is lacking and nothing is superfluous. In Kazahana, Shun took away anything that does not matter and kept everything that does—high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control. The steel is Japanese AUS10A, a highly refined, high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel that takes a razor-sharp edge and holds it longer. Kazahana’s lustrous satin finish hides scratches and has exceptional food release properties. The handles are made of symmetrical and contoured polished black Pakkawood for longevity and beauty, that instills confidence with every slice. Full-tang construction provides strength, balance, and easy cutting control. Like all Shun knives, Kazahana is sharpened to a 16° cutting angle on each side to cut cleanly and help preserve food’s freshness and best taste.
