Knife Description:

The Chef's knife is the one knife no cook can be without. So if you like the looks of Kanso, the Shun Kanso 8" Chef's Knife is a must-have. This all-purpose knife is ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The 8" length is perfect for preparing fruits, vegetables, proteins and wide variety of other foods.

The Kanso Chef's Knife is based on its Asian counterpart, the gyuto. It offers a wider heel, a fairly flat profile toward the heel—perfect for push cuts—but we also gave it a little belly from mid-blade toward the tip so that it can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. The taguyasan wood handles are slightly contoured, enabling an easy and comfortable chef's grip while cutting.

The Shun Kanso 8" Chef's Knife is part of the Kanso series. Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means "simplicity," but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. In Kanso, Shun took away anything that doesn't matter and kept everything that does: high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, 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 on each side to cut cleanly and help preserve food's freshness and best taste.

This classical and unique Japanese Chef’s Knife is delivered in a Cardboard Gift Box.
