The Shun Ken Onion 7-Inch Hollow Ground Santoku Knife features the same clad VG-10 blade famous in the Shun line. Shun Ken Onion knives combine this handsome, nonstick blade with a Ken Onion signature ergonomic handle design and the unique blade sweep found only in Shun Ken Onion knives. To meet the demand for more, Shun recently expanded the Ken Onion series to include all of the most popular styles from the Shun Knives Classic series. Shun Knives are dishwasher safe, however, as with any lifetime investment, it's important to take the best care possible in order to prolong the life of your knife. For multiple reasons, Shun does not advise putting knives in the dishwasher. Hand-washing is recommended. Limited lifetime warranty.
