Kanso // 3 Piece Starter Set // ToMo Exclusive
The Shun Kanso 3-Piece Starter Set is based on a Zen design principle. Kanso refers to simplicity achieved by eliminating the non-essential. For Shun's Kanso line, they honed their ever-excellent line of knives down to everything that matters: high-performance steel, razor-sharp edges, perfect balance, and precision cutting control.
These knives are made from Japanese AUS10A, a highly refined, high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel that takes and holds a razor sharp edge for a long time. Kanso's Heritage finish hides scratches and gives the knives a rustic look that improves with age. The handle is made of tagayasan wood, also known as wenge, called "iron sword wood" in some parts of Japan. The handle contouring enables an easy chef's grip. Like all Shun knives, Kanso is sharpened to a 16º cutting angle on each side, to help preserve food's freshness, taste, and a clean cut.
This set includes three key pieces of cutlery no kitchen should miss. The 8" Chef's Knife is a do-it-all knife you'll use anytime you cook. The 3.5" Paring Knife handles all small peeling, coring, and trimming tasks. The 6" Utility Knife completes the set, and is perfect for all of the in between tasks.
