About This Product:

When it comes to your kitchen, its all about finding the tool that are just right for you. If you prefer a smaller knife, may we suggest you try the Shun Kanso 5.5-inch Santoku In size, its smaller than our full-sized santoku, but still offers all the performance you expect from a favorite kitchen tool. Its in-between weight and size make this santoku perfect for medium-sized kitchen tasks, from slicing carrots and shallots to mincing herbs to cutting chocolate or butter. The hollow-grounds on the blade help food release more quickly, making food preparation even easier. Cooks with smaller hands or those who simply prefer a more compact knife may find that this slightly smaller santoku becomes a top go-to knife. Some cooks have told us they use it in place of a paring knife or find it to be the ideal size for cutting up breakfast fruit.

The Shun Kanso 5.5-inch Hollow-Ground Santoku is part of the Shun Kanso series. Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means simplicity, but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. In Kanso, we took away anything that doesnt matter and kept everything that does: high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control. The steel is Japanese AUS10Ahighly refined, high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel that takes a razor-sharp edge and holds it longer. Kansos Heritage finish hides scratches and gives Kanso a rustic look that just improves with age. The handle is made of tagayasan wood, sometimes known as iron sword wood. The handle contouring enables an easy chefs 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 foods freshness and best taste.
