Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means "simplicity" but it is a simplicity that is achieved by concentrating solely on what is most essential. When it comes to Shun's Kanso cutlery, essential means high-performance steel, a razor sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control.

This Asian-style, all-purpose kitchen knife is shorter than a standard chef's knife, light, agile and easy to maneuver with just enough belly curve for rocking cuts. Hollow-ground indentations reduce friction and help the blade glide through food.

Constructed from AUS10A high-carbon stainless steel refined with Vanadium, this knife is strong, corrosion resistant, wear resistant, and razor sharp.

Tagayasan Wood Handle
Known as "iron sword wood" - the Kanso line features a Tagayasan Wood handle that is notable for its denseness, durability, and simple beauty while providing easy cutting control. The handle is also angled for a comfortable chef's grip and precision cutting.
