Shun Ken Onion Essential 3-Piece Knife Set

Ken Onion's revolutionary knife designs are derived from his studies of chefs at work. The blades' curved spines facilitate cutting through a simple rocking motion. Uniquely shaped bolsters and contoured handles provide a natural grip that reduces hand fatigue. Set includes a 3" paring knife, a 5" serrated utility knife and an 8" chef's knife. VG-MAX "super steel" blades are clad on each side with 16 microthin layers of high-carbon steel, creating a variegated look reminiscent of a Damascus-style blade. Specially shaped handles increase control while decreasing fatigue. Handles are made from resin-infused PakkaWood for lasting moisture resistance. Handcrafted by Kershaw, premier cutlery makers for more than 90 years.

My go to knives
February 5, 2009
My husband and I love the set, although he thought at first we made a mistake by giving our daughter the butcher block full of knives. We are pleased with the set of 3 knives AND this is ALL we use/need. Feels great to clean clutter and get down to just what is needed in the kitchen.

I have the 8" Chef's knife, and I adore it.
I use it almost daily, and proudly display it on my counter in its bamboo stand.
It is wicked sharp, and has handled every task I have put it through.
I honestly dont think I will have to ever buy another Che's knife.

My favorite knife -
September 13, 2008
I only have the Chef's Knife of this set, but it is W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L. I have owned Viking knives for several years, but when I bought the Ken Onion, it moved to the "favorite" slot. It is not so heavy, and has a really soooth feel to it. Will chop and slice like it's going thru butter.
Not to mention, that Williams & Sonoma is my very favorite kitchen store anywhere. These folks stand behind what they sell. The only thing I ever had a problem with - a KitchenAide Mixer after a couple years of use - and they promptly offered me a replacement, at NO charge, and I even got to choose a different color. You just can't beat that kind of service.
