With dramatic curves optimized for power, performance, and ease, the Shun Ken Onion 5” Serrated Utility Knife aims for the ultimate cutting experience. This narrow blade offers all the functionality of a straight-edge utility knife with the added bonus of serrations. This enables it to better handle small, thick-crusted loaves of bread as well as fruits and vegetables with tougher rinds. Reach for this versatile knife for slicing tomatoes, precision work such as trimming green beans or broccoli, as well as for meats and cheeses while assembling the perfect sandwich.
The Shun Ken Onion 5” Serrated Utility Knife has strong VG10 steel at its core, supported by sixteen layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel on each side, a total of thirty-two layers of Damascus cladding. The Kasumi method of knife-making produces a blade that glides and slices easily through foods, and also leaves a lovely, rippled effect upon the blade known as suminigashi, meaning “ink pattern” in Japanese. This razor-sharp blade delivers remarkable edge retention, while its full tang offers exquisite strength and balance.
The Shun Ken Onion line of knives incorporates several design innovations that reduce strain while providing complete control during use. The bolster is angled to extend over the back of the spine, and the handle curves to correspond with the arc of your palm. With stunning beauty and unprecedented ergonomics, these enhancements serve to encourage a professional pinch grip while cutting, and can be used left-handed or right.
Made from PakkaWood, Shun’s innovative resin-treated hardwood, the ebony handle of the Shun Ken Onion 5” Serrated Utility Knife is sanded and buffed to a hard, shiny surface for reliable durability and moisture resistance. Hand wash your fine Shun cutlery for best edge retention.
