Ken Onion by Shun 3-Inch Paring Knife

From the Manufacturer

It began as a single knife, the Shun Ken Onion Chef's Knife. But our customers demanded more. So we've expanded the series to include include all of the most wanted styles. This Shun Knife by Kershaw is designed by Ken Onion, one of the worlds top knife designers. The Shun Ken Onion series features the clad VG-10 blade made famous in our Shun line. But then the handsome, stick-resistant blade is combined with Ken Onion's signature ergonomic handle design and the unique blade sweep found only in a Ken Onion knife. This patent pending design features a special angled curved bolster and specially shaped handle that fits perfectly in the hand, releasing all tension in your arm. The extra curve on the blade allows for an easier flowing motion across the cutting board. Combine all of this with the sharpest Japanese edge available, and you have perfection.

Gorgeous knife.

Very ergonomic. It feels like an extension of your hand - which is what paring knives should feel like.
Incredibly sharp. I cut some chicken with this and it sliced through it like butter; I did not even have to slide the knife back and forth. I cannot overstate how much more satisfying and fun it is to cook with beautiful and high-quality tools.

A paring knife is probably the most-used knife in a kitchen next to a Chef's knife. This is a great addition to my collection.

This is my third Shun knife and all have exceeded my expectations. This little paring knife was wicked sharp right out of the box and the fit and finish is exceptional. I have a hard time picking between the three Shun knives that I now own but this Ken Onion model might be the most interesting. It looks cool and for chopping the balance is great. However, paring knives are often used for more then chopping and this is where problems might arise. If you have small hands you might have a hard time holding the knife and peeling and cutting above a cutting board. Peeling potatoes or other types of knife work that a person might need to do away from a board are not convenient. Otherwise a well made, beautiful knife and if I get the chance to add a 8 or 10 inch chefs knife to my collection I will for sure.

This knife cuts anything with very little force. My wife loves it more then I do as her hands are small and this is very comfortable for her to use when cutting strawberries and other small fruit. It also cuts meat like it was melted butter. I would definitely buy again

Nice blade and holds an edge well- even through vigorous restaurant usage.

Many people I've shown it too are weary of it's unusual shape, but I find that it fits very well into my hand and works great as my main paring knife.
