The Shun Classic bread knife is designed to make slicing crusty bread or vegetables easy. It is designed with an offset handle design that gets your fingers away from the cutting board, ideal for cutting bread, pastries, cakes, and any large fruit with a tough skin. Itís a perfect blade for cutting easily through crisp bread crusts without compressing the delicate interiors.
This specialized knife has a scalloped blade made from VG-10 stainless steel. The outer layers of softer stainless act as a support and coating for the inner core. The results of this construction include ease of maintenance and superior edge retention.
All Shun Classic knives boast a fit and finish that is as good as it gets. The durable and easy to hold pakka wood handle is beautifully finished and seamlessly attached to the stainless bolster and end cap. A lifetime warranty is included.

A wonderful tool for slicing, from beef to tomatoes, it does it all while saving your knuckles!
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Loved the instructional videos on the website.
Great service and quick shipping. Best selection of Japanese knives around. I recommend this site to all of my fellow culinary professionals!
