Shun Kanso Chefs Knife 20cm

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 Chefs Knife is the one knife no cook can be without. So if you like the looks of Kanso, the Shun Kanso 20cm Chefs Knife is a must-have. This all-purpose knife is ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The 20cm length is perfect for preparing fruits, vegetables, proteins, and a 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 tagayasan-wood handles are slightly contoured, enabling an easy and comfortable chef's grip while cutting.
