Ken Onion Rain 7-Piece Block Set

The award-winning Rain cutlery collection showcases the iconic design ingenuity of world-renowned American knifemaker Ken Onion. Each knife is customized for a specific kitchen task, high-carbon stainless-steel blades are distinguished by a textured raindrop pattern that allows knives to glide effortlessly through food. Ergonomic handles are precision-shaped to ensure the knife's peak performance at its intended task-and feel exceptionally comfortable in your hand. A great introduction to the Rain Series, this essential set includes four of the most frequently used kitchen knives-plus shears, a steel and an 11-slot storage block. Razor-sharp blades are constructed of CTS-BDZ1 high-carbon stainless steel, a state-of-the-art alloy engineered for optimal strength, durability and performance. Blades are laser-cut to a tolerance of 1/10,000 of an inch to guarantee maximum precision. The textured raindrop pattern is produced using a proprietary process designed to reduce surface tension and drag by creating multiple air pockets-resulting in a stick-resistant blade that encourages effortless motion. Seamless handles are constructed of G-10 Garolite, an incredibly strong military-grade inert material that is highly impervious to both heat and moisture. Custom-contoured handles enhance the specific performance task of each knife. Each knife's ergonomic drop-shaped handle combines a "control bump" with indentations designed to perfectly fit your fingers-ensuring the safest, most efficient and comfortable grip, while reducing forearm stress and increasing stability. Named "Kitchen Knife of the Year" at the 2013 Blade Show. From Chef Works, every knife in the Ken Onion Rain Series is proudly made in the USA. 7-Piece Set includes: 4" detail knife 6" straight utility knife 8" chef's knife 9" bread knife 9" sharpening steel Kitchen shears 11-slot oak storage block Please note: Storage block is counted as an individual piece.

Best Knife Set I've Ever Bought!
September 16, 2014
This knife set is the perfect addition to your tools if you love working in the kitchen. The knives really retain their edge - I've had this set for months and I haven't had to sharpen them yet! The block looks beautiful on my kitchen counter top. Many friends have asked abut my beautiful knife set - the designed blades really catch attention.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Sharpness
