What makes this bread knife special—and better—is the way Shun has crafted the serrations. These aren't jagged little teeth that chew through your bread. These are razor-sharp "low-frequency" serrations. These wider serrations glide through the bread with ease. Cutting is even smoother because Shun designed the serrations so there's an equal amount of cutting power on the forward and back strokes. Look at the blade and you'll see that the serrations lean forward on the front of the blade and backward on the back of the blade. That small change makes a big difference in cutting ease.
