The Shun Premier Bread Knife is designed specifically to tackle bread. Its sharp, serrated blade cuts through the softest (and hardest) breads with ease and without crushing.
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 Premier 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 sawtooth 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 Premier Bread Knife’s smooth cutting capabilities.
All Shun Premier knife purchases come in a beautifully presented gift box.

As with any lifetime investment, it is important to take the best care possible in order to prolong the life of your knife. Shun recommends that you protect your investment by hand-washing your blades with gentle dish soap. Do not use soaps with citrus extracts; they can promote rust. Rinse and towel dry immediately. Let the knives air dry for a few minutes before returning them to storage.
Never leave your knife sitting in a sink full of soapy water, metal does not respond well to being submerged in water for prolonged periods of time.
In order to maximise the life of the blade, regular honing with a Shun Honing Steel will be necessary. Weekly honing will extend the time between sharpening significantly. When the time comes to sharpen these premium blades, we recommend using a Shun Whetstone, the Shun Electric Knife Sharpener (specifically designed to sharpen Shun’s 16° blade angle), or sending your knives to a professional sharpener.
