The Shun Sora Bread Knife is one to fall in love with. Whether you prefer a rustic, crusty bread or a soft and tender loaf, the Shun Sora Bread Knife will cut through easily to give you the perfect slice of bread every time. The serrations on this amazing knife are not your typical jagged little teeth that chew through your bread, these are razor-sharp "low-frequency" serrations. These wider serrations glide through the bread with ease and cutting is even smoother because Shun has designed the serrations so that there's an equal amount of cutting power on the forward stroke and on the back stroke. 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.

Product Reviews for Shun Sora Bread Knife 9 in. (22.9 cm) Blade
The Sora knife line uses Shun's proprietary Composite Blade technology to bring together a VG10 san mai cutting edge with a Japanese 420J stainless steel upper. This technology puts high-performance material exactly where it's needed—on the edge. The two blade sections are laser cut, then fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Braze welding permanently joins them. The attractive wavy pattern at the joint is based on traditional Japanese sword hamon lines. While Sora's blade shapes and handle design are traditional Japanese, the textured PP/TPE polymer blend handle material provides a contemporary look, secure grip and balance, and is easy to maintain.
