The Shun Kanso Scalloped Santoku Knife is a beautiful Japanese chef's knife that many cooks have added to their kitchen favourites. 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 manoeuvre. There's just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which just adds to the knife's versatility. You'll find 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 Scalloped Santoku Knife 18cm 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.
