The Shun Kanso 7" Hollow Ground Santoku Knife has a classic Japanese profile with a simplistic, zen-inspired design that is spare, yet lacks nothing. The blade is forged from a high-performance formulation of Japanese AUS10A, high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel that extends to a visible, flat, full tang. The material has exceptional strength and hardness, so it can be ground thin and beveled, like all Shuns, to a wicked-sharp 16° per side. The blade is also Hollow Ground for slicker performance and less food adhesion. Shun has applied a "heritage" finish that is unique to the Kanso line; it creates an understated, rustic look that will become increasingly beautiful with time and use. Finally, a simple and perfectly functional handle is fashioned from contoured tagayasan wood slats, secured by two rivets. The Kanso 7" Santoku is light, precise and fast; the perfect blade for a wide range of fruit, veg and light protein prep. The Kanso line isn't shiny, but we find these knives to be more and more beautiful everytime we use them! Handcrafted in Seki, Japan and backed by Shun's limited lifetime warranty. Measures 12.5" l x 2" w x 1" h.
