Shun Ken Onion 7" Hollow-Ground Santoku

Ken Onion designed this Japanese-made santoku to feel like a natural extension of your hand. Its wide pointed blade combines the features of a cleaver and chef's knife for efficient chopping, mincing and slicing. Oval indentations minimize friction and prevent sticking.VG-10 "super steel" blade is clad on each side with 16 microthin layers of high-carbon steel, creating a variegated look reminiscent of a Damascus-style blade.Indentations ground into the wide pointed blade keep sliced food from sticking.Specially shaped handle increases control while decreasing fatigue.Handle is made from resin-infused PakkaWood for lasting moisture resistance.Handcrafted by Kershaw, premier cutlery makers for more than 90 years.

Best knife I own
August 17, 2012
I have many good knives, all of them professional quality. I have a trigger finger and find that this knife with its curved handle eases the locking of that center finger. It is my current favorite knife of all time! The knife holder is handy and sits nicely on the counter next to all the other knives. This knife is good for everything from tomato slicing/dicing to thin slicing chicken.
