You may know that Shun and Kershaw brands are both owned by the same company. You may also know that Ken Onion is one of the most successful designer of Kershaw knives, winning numerous industry awards throughout his career.
So what happens when a premium kitchen knife maker asks a superstar designer to tackle the Chef’s knife?
The Ken Onion Shun Chef’s knife offer all of the high-end features you’ve come to expect from Shun, while improving on the ergonomics of typical Chef’s knives.
The knife’s handle is made of durable Pakkawood and is specially crafted to decrease damage sustained by moisture, as well as to provide easier handling for this culinary tool.
The blade is forged from Damascus-style VG-10 stainless steel, and resists rust or corrosion. It’s got a Rockwell Hardness rating of 61, making it quite a sharp blade.
Some say the feel is not for them and it’s not cheap, so you probably want to try it out before committing. But between the Shun name, the superior steel and Ken Onion’s reputation, it’s no doubt a great knife.
