If you've been baking your own bread lately, like so many people, you deserve to own this most beautiful of bread knives. Previously available in Europe, but not in the US, this exquisite bread knife features Shun's Dual Core Damascus blade. The dramatic blade is created from 71 alternating micro layers of high carbon, high chromium VG10 and VG2 stainless steels, roll-forged to produce a finer grain in the steel and to give it both strength and beauty. The laminated steel is then hot forged to create the pattern that allows the layers to alternate along the cutting edge. A contoured handle provides a comfortable and secure grip whether you're slicing bread that is crusty or tender. Shun's wide serrations make cutting easy and produce less crumbing. Full-tang construction offers exceptional balance and strength. The Shun Nagare Bread Knife's polished rivets and tapered endcap add to the sophisticated, luxurious look of this high-performance cutlery.
