The Ken Onion line has strong VG10 steel at the core of each blade, supported by thirty-two layers of Damascus cladding, sixteen layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel on each side. Using the Kasumi knife-making technique, the process results in a blade that slices and glides through foods with great ease. The method also leaves an enchanting rippled effect along the blade known in Japanese as suminigashi, or ink pattern. This razor-sharp blade displays exquisite edge retention, while its full tang exhibits marvelous strength and balance.
The Shun Ken Onion 6 Chef s Knife incorporates a number of design innovations for optimal control and reduced strain during use. The bolster extends over the back of the spine at an angle, while the handle arcs to meet the curve of your palm. Stunning beauty and unprecedented ergonomics unite to encourage a professional pinch grip while cutting, whether the knife is gripped with left hand or right.
Shun s PakkaWood, a resin-treated hardwood, is used to craft the ebony handle, which is sanded and buffed to a hard, glossy finish for remarkable durability and moisture resistance. For best edge retention, hand wash your fine Shun cutlery.
