Shun Kanso 8" Cook's / Chef's Knife A must-have for anyone who loves to cook, this all-purpose chef's knife by Shun Premier comes in handy for a variety of food-prepping tasks. Use it to chop, slice, dice, and more--everything from carrots and potatoes for a savory stew, green peppers and onions for a homemade pizza to fruit for a summer salad. Shun pronounced "shoon" in Japanese, is known as "at the peak of perfection".  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. Made in Japan. The chef's knife is the one knife no cook can be without. So if you like the looks of Kanso, the Shun Kanso 8-inch Chef's Knife is a must-have. This all-purpose knife is ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The 8-inch length is perfect for preparing fruits, vegetables, proteins, and a wide variety of other foods. The Kanso Chef's Knife is based on its Asian counterpart, the gyuto. It offers a wider heel, a fairly flat profile toward the heel—perfect for push cuts—but we also gave it a little belly from mid-blade toward the tip so that it can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. The taguyasan-wood handles are slightly contoured, enabling an easy and comfortable chef's grip while cutting. Blade Construction:  AUS10A—high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel Full tang, provides strength & balance Hand-sharpened 16° double-bevel blade (32° comprehensive) Handle: Contoured tagayasan wood Heritage finish hides scratches, gives Kanso a rustic look that just improves with age Made in Japan Lifetime Manufacturers Warranty
