"Knife designers worship Ken Onion. (Yes, that's his real name. Yes, he knows it's funny: 'Chive' and 'Scallion' are the names of some of his designs.) He breaks the mold again with this unconventional design for Shun, a favorite in our test kitchen for its exceptional ergonomics. The exaggerated curve of the edge makes for a smoother rocking motion when chopping." -- As featured on FoxNews.com
Seven hundred years of Japanese tradition has brought us to the edge of perfection.
The new Ken Onion Shun Chef's Knife is destined to be on the top of your must-have list. It features the clad VG-10 blade made famous by the Shun line. But now, the blade has been combined with the ergonomic handle design and unique blade sweep found only in a Ken Onion knife.
This knife deserves special treatment - and gets it. The Ken Onion Shun comes complete with its own bamboo stand that not only protects its fine-honed edge, but also displays this handsome knife to perfection. The special wooden knife holder suspends the knife in a way that keeps the blade from touching the wood.
This stunningly beautiful line of cutlery features the look and benefits of Damascus steel, yet without its rusting problems. The Damascus-look blade profile reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut and faster prep times.
The VG-10 stainless steel is clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side, producing a rust-free Damascus-look. The VG-10 "super steel" is composed of Carbon, Chromium, Cobalt, Manganese, Molybdenum, Silicon, and Vanadium. Ebony-black PakkaWood handles are specifically designed for premium applications. The knife includes a stainless steel bolster and end cap, and it is dishwasher safe.
