The  KAI  Shun Classic 21 cm offset bread knife works with wide, “low frequency” serrations that are not only razor-sharp, but they do a much better job slicing any type of bread than a straight-edged knife.

The offset handle position creates additional knuckle clearance and perfectly positions the hand for a more powerful—and thus, easier—cut. The scalloped serrations will slice neatly into the loaf without skidding; no matter how crusty it is. Even with bread,  the knife glides through without shredding and with fewer crumbs.

The undulating serrations provide the power needed to gently saw through a crusty loaf without tearing the tender interior. And it works equally well on very soft breads and even pastries. 



Shun Classic's thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef's knives.



The  KAI  Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. 

The core layer of the knife is made from V-Gold-MAX-steel. This is an extremely hard (61±1 HRC, 1.0% carbon, 1.5% cobalt) and corrosion-resistant steel that gives the blade a sharpness that is second to none and an incredible edge retention.
The core is clad with Damascus stainless steel with 16 layers in each side (33 total), then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.
The convex cut of the blade together with the manual honing of each Shun knife delivers an unrivalled sharpness that allows the knife to cut through even the toughest material.
The edge on a Shun Classic knife is beveled at a 16° angle creating a very sharp edge.


The knife features a pakkawood (wood plastic composite material) handle D-shaped, which looks and feels like wood, but is dishwasher safe. The other unique feature of the handle is the design. The D-shaped handle actually has a ridge at the bottom, increasing control and grip. 

The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
