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.
