about this product

designed by Ken Onion

Ken Onion has a strong history in the world of kitchen knives.  The designs he produced for Shun revolutionized the style and functionality of knives found in both professional and home kitchens.

That relationship with Shun ended a few years ago and Ken has forged a new relationship with Chef Works, a company that specializes in products for the professional kitchen. Through a combination of advanced production technologies and an exhaustive study of ergonomics, style, shapes and materials, they have created the Rain Series of kitchen knives, which they say outperform the world's leading brands.

Constructed of high-performance stainless steel, the uniquely shaped blades have gone through a proprietary process to create a pattern of water droplets on the surface. This process was specifically designed to reduce both surface tension and drag across the entire blade by creating multiple air pockets. These air pockets significantly reduce the amount of surface area in contact with the food being cut.  The result is a blade that slices effortlessly with an almost non-stick surface.

The handles are highly polished 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.

Ken's signature drop handle and control bumb lets you use the knife smoothly no matter how tall you are or which hand you cut with.  The generous curve to the belly of the blade means that both the classic forward slicing motion, as well as a rocking motion cut, can be used effectively.
