The Kai Shun Kanso 18cm Granton Santoku is a Japanese knife with multi-purpose in your kitchen much like a traditional chefs knife.
The Shun Kanso 18cm Santoku is a beautiful, Asian-inspired chefs knife that many cooks today have added to their kitchen favourites. A knife of many talents, a santoku easily handles all the basic kitchen cutting tasks. In fact, some people even prefer it to a chefs knife. Slightly shorter than the standard chef’s knife, the Shun Kanso Santoku is very easy to manoeuvre. There’s just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which just adds to the knife’s versatility. We think you’ll find that this distinctive kitchen knife works beautifully and fits your hand like a glove. As easy to use as a chefs knife, the santoku is especially well suited to a down-and-forward cutting motion (push cut). Many cooks swear by their santoku for easy food preparation and top performance.
If you have admired the simple lines and effortless grace of Japanese design, you have experienced Kanso. Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means “simplicity”, but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. To create Shun Kanso, Kai Shun has taken away anything that doesn’t matter and kept everything that does; high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, with full tang construction providing the 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. Kanso is a simple and beautiful kitchen knife with a rustic, heritage finish that performs every time.
