Description

The Shun Kanso Asian Utility Knife features a beautiful multi-tasking blade from its sharp tip, which can be used to peel ginger, to its long, straight edge, perfect for portioning meat. While it may look like a meat cleaver, it isn't. Instead, this Asian Utility Knife is adept at processing quantities of vegetables for stir fry and thinly slicing meats. Every part of this knife can be put to use. The flat side is able to smash a garlic clove and the back side to tenderize meat. Use the tip and razor-sharp edge for everything from skinning fish to shaving vegetables. Once you use it, you'll find yourself reaching for this precision knife more and more often. <br /><br />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&deg; 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.

    Sweeeeet!

    Love shun knives and when i saw this one knew I had to get it. As always beautifully sharp right out of of the box (to the woe of one of my fingers that now bends a little to far in the wrong direction. Never try to catch a falling shun). Performs exactly ad it should and weighted perfectly for whatever holding style you have. Handle still grips nice even when a little wet.

    Sturdy and easy to handle

    This knife works really well cutting veggies for salads. Haven't tried it on meat yet, but I like the heavy solid feel. It seems really easy to handle. Not too crazy about the handle material, but it doesn't slip and would be really hard to stain.

    Rustic and beautiful

    Like stepping through time, the rustic looking but comfortable handle and the Shape of the blade that just old school but isn't and the balanced feel even after putting roughly a 13 degree bevel with M series shaptons. I love it's shape and I wish it came in 10 inch also, I'd own one that size in a heartbeat. Great design and functionality.

    Much better than I imagined!

    I own and freehand sharpen just about 96% or more of factory made, one offs, rare steels, single bevels, 70/30 bevels, if you name it is got it from Japanese, French, Maestro Wu (VERY UNDERRATED BRAND), German, a few from different countries. This for the price is everything I want and could ask for. I always sharpen my own right out of the box putting a Saber style edge on it, (out of the box, the sharpest factory knife I've come across in 25 plus years). It's more than worth the money and will get more once I relaunch my websites come mid-winter. The edge will be available for viewing plus video using this and several others. My only grip being a huge Japanese/Chinese style thin cleaver fan is there going to feel neglected since I think this is about as vertical as they are. Nothing like a brand that continues to grow with the market, if they made this design in S30v, it would be a unbeatable combo of functions and comfort. I feel sure someone will one day in this unique nakiri/cleaver/chef knife do all in one package. Hats off to cutlery and more for fast prompt get it out the door service. I love dealing with them.

    Great knife, not special though.

    I am a line cook in a high volume kitchen and it handles beautifully. The fit and weight are amazing but after a while my hand starts to cramp. This is my go to knife for heavy tasks
