Reserve Bread Knife
The perfect slice—beautifully
What a beautiful way to slice a loaf of bread. The Shun Reserve Bread Knife, with its wide, “low frequency” serrations, will do a much better job of slicing any type of bread than a straight-edged knife. There’s no crushing, no tearing; just beautiful slices, whether you’re making thin or thick slices.
The Shun Reserve contoured handle lets your hand fit neatly and securely into place as you gently saw back and forth to cut off the perfect slice of bread with nary an unsightly rip or tear. Whether your bread is delicately tender or wonderfully crusty, the Shun Reserve Bread Knife is the perfect choice.
The Shun Reserve Bread Knife is part of the Shun Reserve line, a masterful blend of graceful beauty and impeccable performance. Shun Reserve knives are full-tang Western-style kitchen tools clad with 32 layers of flowing “ladder” Damascus on each side of the blade—for a total of 64 layers of cladding. Yet as beautiful as this elegant Damascus is, it is Reserve’s SG2 steel cutting core that makes it truly remarkable. This ultra-fine-grained steel is incredibly hard and dense—enabling Shun to make thinner blades that can be sharpened to a razor-like 16° angle. At the same time, SG2 offers unmatched edge retention. Shun Reserve offers the strength and perfectly balanced weight that Western-style knife lovers prefer. Full-tang, riveted construction provides a heftier blade that delivers both power and precision. Exceptionally beautiful, Shun Reserve knives offer supreme performance and are a pleasure to use.
