This is the best block I have found for my Shun Ken Onion knives. The design of the block shows off the curves of the Onions beautifully. Another reviewer noted that you could put the knives in the block with the edges out. You will not do this. The handles become cramped and it won't look or feel right. The knives will wobble rather than feeling secure in the block.

Having said this, there are a few things I would like to see in the next iteration. (1) It needs slots for the fork and the cleaver or at least the fork. (2) The scissors slot is too small for the Shun scissors to fit correctly - the Wusthof scissors fit perfectly, but they are no-where near as good as the Shuns. (3) The block needs to be about one inch taller - my 10" chef's top rests on the counter. Because of the design of the block and the Ken Onion knife is held securely in place and has not damaged my counter top in the least.

Despite the nit picking, this is still far and away the best block for your Ken Onion knives. 5 stars - Highly recommended just as the Ken Onion knives themselves are.

Great looking knife block for your gorgeous Ken Onion knives. I am just starting my collection of these awesome knives and this storage block fits nicely and attractively on my counter. There are plenty of slots to fill with the many knife selections available in this design.

This works perfectly for the Ken Onion knives, which have a curved shape so they do not fit into any other block. I also have my other Shun knives in this block (along with two Wusthof) and they fit fine, not as snugly as the Ken Onion, but I was purchasing this so I had a place to store my Ken Onion knives appropriately. I love the look and style of this block; I have received a number of compliments.

Shun Knives are quite a piece of manufacturing art. However when creating this block someone stayed out to lunch a little too long and forgot to check the quality.

Sticker showing the Shun logo on the base is so crooked that you can see the sticker holding the adhesive. At $150-250 a knife with 10 slots. Well you do the math. To see this poor example of craftsmanship at the base of my investment makes me wonder about carrying quality throughout all of the Shun products.

Also I do question if it can correctly hold a 10 inch Ken Onion Shun due to length.

I rate it OK just because I trust it's good at what it's intended for which apparently is to fit Ken Onion knives. I could not use it with my Victorinox knives (LOTS of sharp edges exposed) and purchased a Wusthof 6-slot block, which works fine. So I am not criticizing this Shun block at all.

I bought this block because my currrent knife block did not fit the Ken Onion knives. The block is very nice, and seems solid. We've had it for about 6 months now, and it looks the same as the day it arrived. Now I only need more of the Ken Onion knives to fill it up more!

I had some issues finding a block I could put my Ken Onion knives in, this one fits beautifully. Also note that as others have said you should point the sharp end of the blade towards the center.

I had purchased the Shun block that holds twice as many knives but the onion knives wouldnt fit so I replaced it with this and it has been a great block.

Had a horrible time finding a block for these knives. Would like to see on that fits more knives. The cleaver also doesn't fit into any of the slots. However, this is exactly what was promised and the best one out there.

If you want a true quality knife with a extremely sharp edge, great balance and looks like a piece of art, this is it. Shun has gone above and beyond what is needed to produce an amazing set of knives. All other knives pale in comparison, with an edge up to the standards of a surgical instrument these knives will make any meal preparation easy.

I bought an 8.5" Shun chef knife a few months ago thinking that I would upgrade my almost 20 years old knives set to one perfect knife. I absolutely loved the knife and had decided to trade it in for the entire set.

I loved the design, the sharpness, the weigh balance, and the quality. I am not a professional but I have received many compliments of how I handle the knife and cut the ingredients with ease like a professional. Trust me, the knife did all the work for me. For certain these knives are pricey but they are worth every penny.

This is a beautiful block, but it isn't very well integrated into the Shun Edo knives. The slot on the lower left is to narrow for any knife in that series. And the kitchen shear slot isn't wide enough for the Shun shears; they have a nut on them that sticks out and prevents them from sliding nicely into the slot.
