Shun Kanso Santoku Knife 17.8cm
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 Santoku Knife is a beautiful, Asian-inspired chef's knife that many cooks today have added to their kitchen favourites. A knife of many talents, a santoku easily handles all the basic kitchen cutting tasks. In fact, some people even prefer it to a chef’s knife. Slightly shorter than the standard chef's knife, the Shun Kanso Santoku is very easy to maneuver—even in a smaller kitchen. There's just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which just adds to the knife's versatility. We think you’ll find that this distinctive kitchen knife works beautifully and fits your hand like a glove. As easy to use as a chef's knife, the santoku is especially well suited to a down-and-forward cutting motion (push cut). Many cooks swear by their santoku for easy food preparation and top performance.
