Thread: Ken Onion "Rain" Mini reveiw

  1. #51
    And who was John Primble? He wasn't a custom knifemaker, as best I can tell he was a salesman for a large hardware wholesaler in the 1920-30s. Old Hickory (Ontario Cutlery) and all the other Old something another "forged" kitchen knives are based on a con job a guy (Nuna Knife Works) was running in the early 20th century selling knives to blacksmiths that they then claimed they handforged them in their own shop. Dave Murphy and old Gerber collection would probably be a better example of a custom maker that was able to sell a successful kitchen knife line to a factory. Other names are few and far between.

    Anyone else get that "chocolate rain" song stuck in their head every time this thread pops up?

    I think someone should put together a Tay Zonday/Rick Astley duet.

    Ok guys I became a bit confused. Please advise if this Ken Onion Rain series chef's knife is good or not. And also what about BDZ1 steel used for these knives.
    Thank you in advance

    You can do lot lot better for that money , I would say look at something else. There was a nenox 270mm gyuto on B/S/T , i don't know if it is still available but you may want to look at it. It was also from Sydney.
    For a $200 knife I wouldn't go for a company whose expertise is making chef jackets and pants.
