Description

The Shun Kanso Chef's Knife is ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The 8-inch length is perfect for preparing fruits, vegetables, proteins, and a wide variety of other foods. It's based on its Asian counterpart, the Gyuto and offers a wider heel with a fairly flat profile toward the heel, perfect for push cuts. The belly part of the blade (from mid-blade toward the tip) can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. The tagayasan wood handle is slightly contoured, enabling an easy and comfortable grip while cutting.

Shun Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy meaning "simplicity," but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. Features high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control. The blade is constructed of Japanese AUS10A highly refined high-carbon vanadium stainless steel sharpened to a 16° cutting angle each side to cut cleanly and help preserve food's freshness and best taste, providing a razor-sharp edge that holds longer. The Heritage finish blade hides scratches and gives a rustic look that just improves with age. The handle is made of tagayasan wood, sometimes known as "iron sword wood." The full tang construction provides strength, balance, and easy cutting control. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty.

    Very Happy

    I took the Kanso to work alongside some other top quality Japanese knives, and it was my new favorite before the end of the first dinner shift. Very well-balanced, very lightweight and nimble. My other knives are harder steel and they tend to chip, especially if you let a rookie or a renegade chef use them. The Kanso doesn't chip. After 3 weeks of fulltime work, all it needs is the honing steel. This knife is an excellent investment. It outperforms much more expensive competitors, and it's just a joy to hold.

    Very pleased

    Been using this knife almost all day every day for about two months now. I work in a fine dining kitchen and while on the line this knife helps me with everything with ease. Not impressed by the factory edge that was on the knife but after some time on a stone this thing is a razor and stays that way for days after the beatings it goes through. Was also a little worried about all the grooves around the handle thinking it would be difficult to keep clean but I have had no issues with that. Definitely recommend this knife.
