Shun Knives: Kanso Series

If you have admired the simple lines and effortless grace of Japanese design, you have experienced kanso. Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means "simplicity," but it is a simplicity that is achieved by concentrating solely on what is most essential.

When it comes to Shun's Kanso cutlery, essential means high-performance steel, a razor sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control.

Kanso is simple - and beautiful - kitchen cutlery that simply performs.
