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 Classic’s thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef’s knives.
