The chef's knife is the one knife no cook can be without. So if you like the looks of Kanso the Shun Kanso 8-inch Chef's Knife is a must-have. This all-purpose knife is ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The 8-inch length is perfect for preparing fruits vegetables proteins and a wide variety of other foods. The Kanso Chef's Knife is based on its Asian counterpart the gyuto. It offers a wider heel a fairly flat profile toward the heel—perfect for push cuts—but we also gave it a little belly from mid-blade toward the tip so that it can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. The tagayasan-wood handles are slightly contoured enabling an easy and comfortable chef's grip while cutting.

Shun Kanso 8-inch Chef's Knife 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 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.
