The Ken Onion Rain Series "Slicing Knives" category is comprised of pieces that were designed with inspiration from the graceful Japanese draw back cutting motion. The 9” Slicer is a great length to cut through foods such as melon, prosciutto, or Ahi tuna. The belly curve of the knife blade allows easy slicing in one pass and promotes a cleaner slice. For increased stability of the index finger, the notches on the top of the blade allow for more control when slicing through items.
The G-10 handle, impervious to both heat and moisture, is designed with an indentation for your fingers to fit impeccably, creating the perfect safe grip. It combines a signature drop handle and control bump that lets you use the knife smoothly and efficiently no matter how tall you are or which hand you cut with, while reducing forearm stress and offering increased stability.
Constructed of high-performance stainless steel, the surface of the blade has been treated by a proprietary process creating the “rain”pattern. This process reduces both surface tension and sticking. 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.
Hand wash the 9” Slicer Knife with soapy water and dry, storing in a knife block or in-drawer knife tray for safety.
To maintain the knife edge, run it lightly along the steel starting at the base of the blade and finishing at the tip. Remember that you want to apply very light and even pressure, maintaining the same angle (15-degrees) as you drop and pull the blade across the steel.
