The Shun Kanso 7-in. Hollow-Ground Santoku is a beautiful, Asian-inspired chef's knife that many cooks today have added to their kitchen arsenal. A knife of many talents, a santoku (meaning three virtues) easily handles all the basic kitchen cutting tasks, such as slicing, dicing and mincing. Often preferred to a chef’s knife for its smaller length than a standard chef's knife, the Shun Kanso Santoku is very easy to maneuver. With a slight curve to the blade, this knife enables rocking cuts, which just adds to the knife's versatility. The santoku is especially well suited to a down-and-forward cutting motion (push cut), making for easy food preparation and top performance. The hollow-ground feature aids in food release from the blade, for faster work. The Shun Kanso 7-in. Hollow-Ground Santoku 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, we 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 each side to cut cleanly and help preserve food’s freshness and best taste. Hand-crafted in Seki City, Japan, Kanso is essential simplicity: a simple kitchen knife that simply performs.
