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.
- 7"-long blade.
- 5"-long handle.
- 8.8 oz.
- Made in Japan.
- Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
- Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
- It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.
- Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
- Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
- Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing once a week, your knife should not need sharpening more than once or twice a year.
- Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener designed to sharpen at a 16-degree angle, or have it sharpened by a professional.
- Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.
