Shun Kanso

Shun kanso

If you have admired the simple lines and effortless grace of Japanese design, you have experienced kanso.
Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means “simplicity,” but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential.
To create Shun Kanso, we took away anything that doesn’t matter and kept everything that does: high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control. Kanso is a simple—and beautiful—kitchen knife that simply performs.

  • Japanese AUS10A blade steel
  • Heritage finish
  • Razor-sharp 16° cutting edge
  • Full tang construction
