Head up- amazing deal on a Shun bread knife!

I just wanted to let everyone know about an amazing deal on the Stainless handled Shun bread knife at Amazon.com. Right now, the steel version is priced at $51.98! Those of you who've priced this will note that it's almost never seen under $100 from any reputable vendor. Another tip- if you sign up for the trial of Amazon Prime at checkout you get 2 day shipping free! You can cancel this service within one month and pay nothing, otherwise it's $79 a year. Although I will say, if you shop there a lot it's a good deal.

I ordered mine on Mon or Tues and got it today! At the price I was a little worried that it might end up being left handed or something, but it was a NIB righty! It was left on my side porch so it's still too cold to touch right now, but once it reaches room temp I'll give it a try!

I would have preferred the normal Classic with the Pakkawood handle but for the price the stainless is a great deal. Despite being steel and a little slicker than the wood one the shape is identical and very comfortable to hold. A great bargain to be sure.

Thanks for the heads-up.
Unfortunatley I already own 3 bread knives, ranging in length from 8 to 16 inches.
Seems the longer knives make it easier to cut more even slices.

I was sorely tempted myself, Rob, except that I have 2 good bread knives already. Not as good as a Shun though, that's for sure!

I was tempted too - however I don't qualify for the free shipping and our dollar is killing us right now so it isn't quite as good a deal for me. And I have a perfectly good Mac bread knife!

I don't use a bread knife an awful lot and had a couple good ones already, but I couldn't pass up a half priced Shun! I'm going to try it out on some crusty rustic peasant bread later tonight.

Be sure and let us know how you like it. (I'm going to live vicariously, Rob!)
