The Shun Kanso 3-piece Starter Knife Set includes three of the most essential pieces of kitchen cutlery. The set is built around the Shun Kanso 20cm Chef's Knife, the one knife you're sure to use every time you cook. When the chef's knife isn't in your hand, you'll probably be using the Shun Kanso 9cm Paring Knife for all those trimming and peeling tasks. Finally, you'll also get the Shun Kanso 15cm Utility Knife - perfect for all those in-between tasks.

The Shun Kanso 3-piece Starter Knife Set is part of the Shun Kanso series. Kanso is a Japanese design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means 'simplicity' that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. In the Kanso series, Shun took away everything 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 a wood called tagayasan or wenge, which is sometimes known in Japan 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.
