Thread: I Don't Understand this Knife

  1. #11
    I have a ken onion shun bread knife, bought it on ebay for less than $70 i believe. the curved handle makes for a nice offset and gives you knuckle clearance. blade chipped pretty easily though. might send it to shun for resharpening.

    I would be very interested in seeing how they deal with chips in the blade. I repaired the edge on one of their paring knives for my sister but was unable to get all of the chips out.

    maybe i will take some pictures before, send it in, and see how it goes. i know they have also mentioned replacing the knife if its too much work to fix it. but idk if they make ken onions anymore.

    I had a few of the Shun damascus knives for a while. It seemed like there were some inclusions in the core steel as small cips "fell out" during use and even during sharpening. For VG-10 this is very strange unless they have gotten a really bad batch of VG-10. I know VG-10 can be chippy if tempered wrong, but in my case small pieces of the steel like a small pinhead size just fell out.

    weird. bad batch would be my guess, as none of my Shuns have ever done that.

    And I thought that Shun couldn't possibly make a more screwed up knife than the Onion chef's knife....I was obviously wrong.

    I think they messed up the description, it is clearly a variation of bread knife.

    That is exactly what her knife did. There are pin holes in the side of the edge, plus the chips on the edge.
