Additional Information
As pretty as it is practical, this set of essential knives makes it easy to slice, dice, cut and chop through a lifetime of kitchen prep. 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.
