Chef Works Ken Onion Rain 6" Chefs Knife

For those who prefer a smaller chefs knife, this 6" Ken Onion Rain chefs knife is a great choice. The 6" chefs knife is good for most chopping tasks, such as carrots, celery, onions and other typical items. The Ken Onion Rain Series of kniv...es by Chef Works combines high-quality materials, a unique blade pattern and a distinctive handle, resulting in culinary instruments and tools that are not only visually stunning, but are also superior in both function and ergonomics. Constructed of high-performance stainless steel, the blades? unique shapes have been treated by a proprietary process creating our beautiful rain pattern. This process was specifically designed to reduce both surface tension and drag coefficient across the entire blade by creating multiple air pockets. These air pockets significantly reduce the amount of surface area in contact with food being cut, resulting in a blade that slices effortlessly with an almost non-stick surface. The handles are constructed of G-10 Garolite, an incredibly strong military-grade inert material that is highly impervious to both heat and moisture. Every elegant curve in the handle has not only been designed to fit the human hand, but also distinctively shaped in order to enhance the specific performance task of each knife. The resulting designs allow the user to cut more safely, efficiently and comfortably. Ken Onion is the youngest inductee in the Knife makers Hall of Fame. This is the knife industry?s highest honor. Ken has teamed up with Chef Works to create the world?s best kitchen knives, and make them in America. The Chef Works + Ken Onion partnership is committed to making the Rain Series knives right here in the USA, without compromise or concession. This exciting new partnership is the culmination of Ken?s passion, history of innovation and desire to support and advance the knife industry. Through a combination of advanced production technologies and modern materials, this specific range offers a pioneering Made-in-the-USA knife collection that can compete with the best in the world. In the process, this range is creating domestic manufacturing jobs, strengthening the US knife industry, and helping create a new generation of knife craftsmen for the future. read more
