Knife Description:
 
The Shun Kanso 9cm Paring Knife is a must-have for every kitchen. Ideal for peeling, coring, trimming and decorating, and other detail work. Its small size gives you complete control over the tip and edge of the blade. In a way, you can think of it as the mini version of the chefs’ knife because, like the chefs’ knife, the paring knife is quite versatile. The paring knife gets its name from its main function—removing or “paring” away things like peels or pits from fruits and vegetables. Generally, you’ll use this knife in your hand rather than against a cutting board, though paring knives can also be used for chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger.
 
If you have admired the simple lines and effortless grace of Japanese design, you have experienced Kanso. Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means “simplicity”, but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. To create Shun Kanso, Kai Shun has taken away anything that doesn’t matter and kept everything that does; high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, with full tang construction providing the perfect balance and precision cutting control. The steel is Japanese AUS10A—highly refined, high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel that takes a razor-sharp edge and holds it longer. Kanso’s Heritage finish hides scratches and gives Kanso a rustic look that just improves with age.
 
The handle is made of Tagayasan Wood, sometimes known as “iron sword wood.”
 
The handle contouring enables an easy chef’s grip. Full-tang construction provides strength, balance, and easy cutting control. Like all Shun knives, Kanso is sharpened to a 16° cutting angle each side to cut cleanly and help preserve food’s freshness and best taste. Kanso is a simple and beautiful kitchen knife with a rustic, heritage finish that performs every time.
 
This classical and unique Japanese Paring Knife is delivered in a Cardboard Gift Box.
 
Knife should be Handwashed only!
