Shun Kanso Paring Knife 3.5-in Shun Kanso Combination Honing Steel 9-in Shun Kanso Utility Knife 6-in
Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means “simplicity,” but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. In Kanso concept development, all that doesn’t matter was left out 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 a wood called tagayasan or wenge, which is sometimes known in Japan 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.

The Shun 3-Piece Sharpening System is the easy way to learn how to sharpen your knives yourself using a whetstone. Because of the slant of the bamboo stand, all you need to do to ensure your knife is at the proper angle when sharpening is to keep the blade flat and parallel to the working surface as you pull it across the stone. Once you’ve sharpened your knife, you can maintain the edge for a longer period of time by honing regularly. The included honing steel can be used in the stand or on its own.
