Shun Kanso 3-Piece Build-a-Block Set 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. 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 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.
This set includes the Shun Kanso 8-inch Chef's Knife and the must-have honing steel to help maintain your Shun-sharp edge. Both fit in an attractive bamboo Slimline Block with room for four more additions to your collection—including a slot for handy kitchen shears. This compact block makes the most of limited kitchen counterspace while still keeping your most-used kitchen tools within easy reach.
