KSSWTS0600: SWTS0600 Kanso 6 Piece Block Set
The Shun Kanso 6 Piece Block Set features five key pieces of kitchen cutlery, plus a beautiful block with a finish to match the Kanso handle. You get the Kanso 8" Chef's Knife, 5.5" Hollow Ground Santoku, 6" Utility Knife, 3.5" Paring Knife and the Kanso Combination Honing Steel. They all fit in the solid wood block—with room to expand. There are two additional slots, plus one to accommodate a handy pair of kitchen shears.
The Shun Kanso 6 Piece Block Set is part of the Kanso series. 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 tagayasan wood, sometimes known 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. Handcrafted in Japan.
