Ken Onion Rain 9-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. Giving you all the precision pieces you need for everyday kitchen tasks, this set includes six of the most frequently used knives-plus shears, a steel and an 11-slot storage block. Razor-sharp blades are constructed of CTSO 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.

Love these knives
November 16, 2014
I picked up two of these Ken Onion Rain knives at a trade show and love them. They are great cooking tools; they are sharp, durable and they look amazing and unique, so I was not surprised when I saw that they were being carried by Williams-Sonoma, where I just bought two more. Their Santility knife is very versatile and I find myself using it for everything. I think these knives are wonderful and I would suggest them to any cook amateur or professional alike.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Sharpness, Shape, Weight
