Shun Kanso 5 Piece Knife Block Set

No reviews yet Write a Review

Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy, meaning “simplicity”, with simplicity being achieved by concentrating on what is most essential.  In this cutlery line, it means high-performance steel, a razor-sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control.  Shun’s striking Kanso 5 piece block set is built around the Kanso 8” chef’s knife - the one knife you will be sure to use each time you cook.  In addition, it includes the paring knife which is ideal for a wide range of trimming and peeling tasks; a 6” utility knife sized for the in-between tasks, a honing steel to maintain your cutlery and a beautiful Slimline Bamboo block.  The block is designed to take up less countertop space while keeping your important knives in easy reach.
