Kanso 8-Piece Block Set
Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means “simplicity"— a simplicity that is achieved only by eliminating the non-essential. With the Kanso Series, Shun Cutlery has taken away anything that doesn’t matter and perfected everything that does: high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control. The Kanso 8-Piece Block Set is a Touch of Modern exclusive, featuring only the essentials for an optimized and versatile minimalist set that will help you prep and cook like a master chef.
The steel is Japanese AUS10A— a highly refined, high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel that takes a razor-sharp edge and holds it longer. Kanso's Heritage finish hides scratches, giving them a stylish rustic look that just improves with age. The full-tang construction provides strength, balance, and easy cutting control, and is finished with a contoured handle for an easy and comfortable grip. The handles are crafted from tagayasan or wenge wood, which is also known in Japan as “iron sword wood" thanks to its exceptional hardness and durability. Like all Shun knives, Kanso is sharpened to a 16° cutting angle each side to cut cleanly and help preserve food’s freshness and taste.
