From our premium Kaji line by Shun, this innovative knife is one of the most versatile in the kitchen, thanks to a unique dual-frequency serrated blade that cuts easily through crusts of bread or soft foods like tomatoes. Handcrafted in Japan, the strong, razor-sharp blade is created through a blend of new technology and centuries-old handcrafting traditions.

  • 65-layer blade features a premium SG-2 powdered steel cutting core clad in 64 layers of forged nickel/stainless steel Damascus.
  • Inspired by centuries-old samurai sword–making techniques, the blade's construction creates a supersharp cutting edge.
  • Long, serrated blade cuts easily through bread crusts to create uniform slices.
  • Handle is made of moisture-resistant, resin-infused PakkaWood, shaped for comfort and control.
  • This NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens.
  • A Williams Sonoma exclusive.

Use & Care


  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.


  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry immediately.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
  • Sharpen your knife at home using a sharpener designed for a serrated blade, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from it is such a pleasure to use this knife I've had this knife for several months and only regret that I didn't buy it years sooner. Very versatile.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knife Nirvana 8 years ago I took a knife skills class and have been developing my skills in the kitchen ever since, but hadn't found what was for me the perfect knife...UNTIL NOW. This Kaji Dual-Density is the one I've been looking for. Comfortable in the hand, scary sharp, and looks good too...It's knife nirvana

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bread Knife This is a replacement for my Shun Ultimate Utility knife. The small serrations and the scalloped waves make it ideal for not only soft or crusty bread, but eggplants and squashes as well. I never appreciated this knife so much until I cut up several loaves of buttered bread for strata. It's a nice mini-saw for the kitchen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Say "hello" to my new best friend! This knife is the penultimate knife for sharpness! I have been collecting Shun Kaji knives for over a year-and-a-half, and this is my latest baby. If I had MY way, I would have bought the entire set in the beginning because now I have 6 knives and the sharpener; the cost for individual knives has now surpassed the cost for the set. ALL their knives cut as cleanly and as sharply as razors, so BE CAREFUL how you use them. And chastise anyone who drops the knife in the sink, POINT DOWN! Now, when my husband asks what I want for my birthday or any other gift-buying occasion, I alwys tell him that he already purchased me a new knife. I could not be happier than I am with these marvelous knives. They truly spoil the chef!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts like butter I have used several brands of knives in the past. I was very satisfied. Now that I have the Shun Kaji knife I can put the others in a drawer,

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work of Art That Works! I purchased this knife as a gift for someone whose sharpest knife was the plastic one that comes with take-out food. It is a truly beautiful and versatile instrument. The handle also accomodates left- and right-handed users unlike the Classic line's D handle. I have since purchased for her the 5" Santoku of the same series for smaller jobs. She now enjoys cooking in a whole new way because of the ease of preparation and the beauty of the instrument.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around knife Beautiful, very sharp, easy to handle, a great addition as it can be used daily in a variety of ways. Slicing bread and tomatoes is easy with this knife plus it also chops other foods as well. great price, we'll worth the investment.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from My least favorite Shun knife Just not one of my favorite Shun designs. Half way between a utility knife, bread knife, and santuko. Blade was too thin for thick handle. I absolutely love the 6 inch utility knife, nagiri, western chef, and paring knife.
