Description

Details

In size, the Shun Kanso Utility Knife is between a chef's knife and a paring knife, but its blade is narrower and straighter. It's perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. Some cooks like to use it in their hand, too - like a large paring knife. Others like its smaller size as an alternative to the chef's knife. Its very slightly curved belly enables it to do moderate rocking cuts. It's nimble enough to peel an onion in hand, then slice it up in short order. Utility knives are sometimes called sandwich knives because they work well on almost everything that goes into a sandwich - from thin-skinned vegetables such as tomatoes, to meats and cheeses.

The Shun Kanso Utility Knife 15cm 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.
