The Shun Kanso 5.5-inch Santoku is smaller than Shun’s full-sized 7-inch Santoku, but offers all the performance you expect from your favorite kitchen knife. The smaller size makes this Santoku perfect for medium-sized kitchen tasks, from slicing carrots and shallots to mincing herbs to cutting chocolate or butter. The hollow-ground feature help food release more quickly, making food preparation even easier. Cooks with smaller hands or those who simply prefer a more compact knife may find that this slightly smaller Santoku becomes a top go-to knife. The hollow-ground feature aids in the release of food from the blade, making cutting tasks quicker. The Shun Kanso 5.5-inch Hollow-Ground Santoku is part of the Shun Kanso series. Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means “simplicity,” but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. For Kanso knives, Shun removed everything that was non-essential, but kept the essentials: 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” notable for its denseness, durability and simple beauty. The contouring of the handle is designed for a chef’s grip for precision cutting. The 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.
