The Shun Ken Onion Knife collection has been designed and built from the ground up for serious cooks who want more performance out of their kitchen knives. Kershaw has expanded this popular Chef Knife into an entire line of knives that offer the Ken Onion Signature ergonomic handle design and the unique blade sweep found only in a Ken Onion Knife. The result is a series of knives that are not only beautiful to look at but a pleasure to use.
I bought this knife for my wife for her birthday. She loves to cook and has several knives from this set already. This set is very comfortable in her hand. The slightly "rounded" blade took some getting used to,but know the cutting stroke is second nature. The blade is very sharp and very long lasting. We love these knives and will buy more!
I wanted one of these for quite a few years,along with the 8 inch chef knife. I went on the CKTG forum and most people said to avoid these. I did,and I am glad. I was finally able to feel one in my hand,and it just is not all that comfortable and it’s just not all that easy to maneuver around,especially for precision cuts and coring. Given it’s price is by no means cheap,I think you can a lot better and for half the price. Global and Richmond make fantastic paring knives and for under $50,so it’s probably worth at least checking them out before buying!
