Summary

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 CTSÔ 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.

Care
