It began as a single knife, the Shu Ken Onion Chef's Knife. But our customers demanded more. So we've expanded the series to include include all of the most wanted styles. This Shun Knife by Kershaw is designed by Ken Onion, one of the worlds top knife designers. The Shun Ken Onion series features the clad VG-10 blade made famous in our Shun line. But then the handsome, stick-resistant blade is combined with Ken Onion's signature ergonomic handle design and the unique blade sweep found only in a Ken Onion knife. This patent pending design features a special angled curved bolster and specially shaped handle that fits perfectly in the hand, releasing all tension in your arm. The extra curve on the blade allows for an easier flowing motion across the cutting board. Combine all of this with the sharpest Japanese edge available, and you have perfection.
