Shun's Kanso series is designed based on a Zen philosophy meaning "Simplicity," but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. This set features high-performance steel, razor-sharp edges, perfect balance, and precision cutting control. The Heritage finish blade hides scratches and gives a rustic look that just improves with age. The handle is made of tagayasan wood, sometimes known as "iron sword wood." The contoured handle enables a chef's grip that's comfortable for both right- and left-handed cooks. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan, these knives pair exceptional performance with timeless artistry.

  • MetroKitchen.com recommends washing your knives by hand and immediately drying them. Do not let your knives soak in water.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts, as they may stain the surface of your knives.
  • For longer lasting knives, cut on a wooden cutting board. Cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass quickly dulls blades.
  • To maintain a sharper cutting edge, use a sharpening steel, preferably each time after using your knives.
  • It's best to store your Shun knife so the edge and your fingers are protected, preferably in a block or in-drawer knife tray.
  • We suggest using a meat cleaver when you need to cut through bone, otherwise you can damage your knife blade.
  • Many Shun knives don't need frequent sharpening because they are made from 32 extremely durable layers of stainless steel.
  • Lifetime limited warranty from Shun with normal use and proper care.
  • Hand crafted in Japan
  • Free lifetime sharpening from Shun. Pay only for shipping; $5 for the first knife, $2 for each additional knife. Please print and complete this form and ship to Shun with the knives you'd like to have sharpened.
