Kershaw Shun Ken Onion Chef’s Knife

Kershaw Shun Ken Onion Chef's Knife
If you really want to step up your knife game in the kitchen, then check out the Shun Chef’s Knife designed by Ken Onion. 16 layers of Damascus steel have been pressed together for your slicing and dicing pleasure. The PakkaWood handle is ergonomically designed to fit most hand sizes and gives a comfortable grip to the 8 inch curved blade. The 16 degree angle on the blade allows for a razor-sharp edge that will last for months. When you do need to sharpen, go old school and use a sharpening stone or see a professional – an electric sharpener will kill the edge.

You can put the Shun in the dishwasher, but why risk it? Rinse it with a little soap and water, and place it back in its wooden holder for all your guests to admire. At some point, you will need to give it a rest after demonstrating your samurai knife skills when preparing that gourmet meal.

At around $200, the Shun is not cheap, but you don’t want to be cheap when it comes to selecting one of your foundation tools in the kitchen. You will use this knife for almost all of your prep work, and why shouldn’t you?
