Kanso // Brisket Knife // 12"
The Shun Kanso Brisket Knife is ideal for trimming and slicing larger cuts of meat, including brisket, roasts, ham, and turkey. The high-performance Japanese AUS10A blade is highly refined, high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel that takes a razor-sharp edge and holds it longer.
The Shun Kanso Brisket Knife’s long, narrow blade makes it easy to slice larger cuts of meat in a single pass to ensure more of the juices—and flavor—stay inside the meat. The long, razor-sharp blade ensures slices will look beautiful, too, since there’s no need to saw back and forth. Hollow-ground indentations on the blade help food release more easily and the rounded tip makes the knife safer and easier to use. The included wooden saya, or sheath, protects the blade and makes it simple to transport to a barbeque or celebration taking place away from home.,
Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means “simplicity,” but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. Kanso knives feature high-performance steel, razor-sharp edges, perfect balance, and precision cutting control. Kanso's Heritage finish hides scratches and gives Kanso a rustic look that just improves with age. The handle is made of a wood called tagayasan or wenge, which is sometimes known in Japan as “iron sword wood.” The handle contouring enables an easy chef's grip. Full-tang construction provides strength, balance, and easy cutting control. Like all Shun knives, Kanso is sharpened to a 16° cutting angle each side to cut cleanly and help preserve food’s freshness and best taste.
