Kai Shun Kanso 20cm Chefs Knife, an all purchase knife that will become an asset to your kitchen.
The chefs knife is the one knife no cook can be without. This all-purpose knife is ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The 20cm length is perfect for preparing fruits, vegetables, proteins, and a wide variety of other foods. The Kanso Chefs Knife is based on its Asian counterpart, the gyuto. It offers a wider heel, a fairly flat profile toward the heel—perfect for push cuts—but also has a little belly from mid-blade toward the tip so that it can be gently “”rocked”” through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. The tagayasan-wood handles are slightly contoured, enabling an easy and comfortable chef’s grip while cutting.
All Shun Kanso knives are presented in an attractive gift box.
