If you like the looks of Shun Kanso 8 inch Chef knife, this is a must-have.

Your new best friend in the kitchen

If there is one knife that you simply can’t be without, it’s this one. It’s an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks.

The eight-inch length is perfect for preparing fruits, vegetables, proteins, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef’s knife can be gently “rocked” through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.

Shun Kanso 8 Inch Chef Knife

Shun Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means “simplicity,” but it is a simplicity that is achieved by concentrating solely on what is most essential.

When it comes to Shun’s Kanso cutlery, essential means high-performance steel, a razor sharp edge, perfect balance, and  precision cutting control.

Kanso is simple and beautiful kitchen cutlery that simply performs.

Tagayasan wood handles and Shun’s Heritage finish combine to give Kanso style that is at once nostalgic and thoroughly modern.  Sometimes Known as

“iron sword wood,” tagayasan (or wenge) is extremely durable.  Combine with high performance Japanese AUS10A blade steel, Kanso will provide a lifetime or extraordinary service.
