Kanso // Boning + Fillet Knife // 6.5"
The Shun Kanso Boning/Fillet Knife is a rigid knife with a razor-sharp edge, and it's adept at key kitchen chores. For boning, the narrow, sharp, curved blade gets in close, making it easy to separate meat from bone. Even fibrous tissue is no match for Shun's extremely sharp edge. It’s perfect for trimming the silver skin from a tenderloin or roast or even making your own cutlets. The narrow blade reduces the drag as you cut against the meat, so cutting is fast and easy. When it comes to filleting fish, the blade's 6.5" length is just right to glide through the body of the fish, quickly removing bones and skin for a perfect fillet. The contoured tagayasan handle provides a secure grip for excellent control.
Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means “simplicity,” but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. Kanso knives feature high-performance steel, razor-sharp edges, perfect balance, and precision cutting control. 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.
