Kanso // BBQ Knives // Set of 4
The Shun Kanso BBQ Set features the three key knives you'll need to handle grill-worthy proteins of all types. This gorgeous set includes the Honesuki, the Shun Kanso Boning/Fillet Knife, and the Shun Kanso Brisket Knife, ideal for trimming and slicing larger cuts of meat, including brisket, ham, and turkey. All knives come in a handsome Shun knife roll, perfect for when you take your BBQ show on the road.
Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means “simplicity,” but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. 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, known in Japan as “iron sword wood.” The handle contouring enables an easy chef's grip and the 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.
