Influenced by the Zen principle of simplicity, the Shun Kanso collection was designed with only the indispensable elements in mind: high-performance steel, a razor-sharp edge, perfect balance and precision handling. Plainly put: with this santoku knife, nothing is lacking and nothing is superfluous.
- Blade of highly refined, high-carbon vanadium stainless steel takes and holds a razor-sharp edge.
- Indentations along the blade reduce friction and keep slices from sticking.
- Heritage-finish blade provides a rustic look that hides scratches and improves with age.
- Angled handle is made of dark tagayasan, an extremely dense wood traditionally used to make samurai sword handles.
- Handcrafted in Japan.
