More about Shun Kanso knives: 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 Degree 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.
