Shun Kanso Utility Knife 15.3cm

A design principle based on Zen philosophy, Kanso means “simplicity,” but the simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. In Kanso, anything that doesn’t matter was taken away and only everything that does was kept: 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.

The Kanso Utility Knife is perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. Some cooks like to use it in their hand, too—almost like a large paring knife or petty knife. Others like its smaller size as an alternative to the chef’s knife. Its very slightly curved belly enables it to do moderate rocking cuts. It’s nimble enough to peel an onion in hand, then slice it up in short order. Utility knives are sometimes called sandwich knives because they work well on almost everything that goes into a sandwich—from thin-skinned vegetables such as tomatoes to meats and cheeses.

  • Multi-purpose, between a chef’s and paring in size
  • Hand-sharpened 16° double-bevel blade (32° comprehensive)
  • Heritage finish hides scratches, gives Kanso a rustic look that just improves with age
  • Steel: AUS10A—high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel
  • Contoured tagayasan or wenge wood
  • Blade length: 15.3 cm (6 in.)
  • Handcrafted in Japan
