KSSWTS0450: SWTS0450 Kanso BBQ Set
Everything you need for your next BBQ.
The Shun Kanso BBQ Set features the three key knives you'll need to handle grill-worthy proteins of all types—all in a handsome Shun knife roll, perfect for when you take your BBQ show on the road. This gorgeous set includes the Shun Kanso Asian Multi-Prep Knife, a Japanese-style poultry knife, the Shun Kanso Boning/Fillet Knife, and the Shun Kanso Brisket Knife, ideal for trimming and slicing larger cuts of meat, including brisket, ham, roasts, and turkey. Brisket knife includes its own wooden saya, or sheath.
Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means "simplicity", but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. In Kanso, Shun took away anything that doesn't matter and kept everything that does: high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control. 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, 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. Knives made in Japan.
