Beautiful, high-performance cutlery—handcrafted in Japan.

Description

A powerful kitchen multi-tasker, the Shun Kanso chef’s knife makes quick work of slicing, dicing and chopping almost any ingredient. Inspired by Asian chef’s knives, it features a wide heel that’s perfect for push cuts and transferring food from board to pan. Plus, the Western-style curved belly can be gently rocked through fresh herbs and spices to produce a very fine mince. As pretty as it is practical, this high-performance knife makes a welcome addition to any cook’s collection.

Shun’s Kanso series is based on the Zen philosophy of simplicity—removing anything that doesn’t matter and keeping only the essentials. Made with Japanese, high-carbon steel, Kanso knives take a razor-sharp edge and hold it longer. Full-tang construction provides strength, balance and precision cutting control. Hand sharpened to a 16° double-beveled edge, these knives deliver perfectly smooth cuts.

Kanso’s beautiful handle is made of tagayasan wood, traditionally used in Japan for making samurai sword handles. A heritage finish on the handle hides scratches, giving knives a rustic look that improves with age. Plus, the contoured handle enables a chef’s grip that’s comfortable for both right- and left-handed cooks. Handcrafted in Japan, these knives pair exceptional performance with timeless artistry.
