The Shun Kanso 7-in. Hollow-Ground Santoku is a beautiful Asian-inspired chef's knife that many cooks today have added to their kitchen favorites. A knife of many talents a santoku easily handles all the basic kitchen cutting tasks. In fact some people even prefer it to a chef’s knife. Slightly shorter than the standard chef's knife the Shun Kanso Santoku is very easy to maneuver—even in a smaller kitchen. 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 chef's 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.

The Shun Kanso 7-in. Hollow-Ground Santoku is part of the 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 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.
