The Shun Kanso 6” Utility Knife is a mix between the two most vital knives in the kitchen: the chef’s knife and the paring knife. As a perfect “in-between” of these two essential knives, the Kanso 6” Utility becomes a basic element in itself—and we think that just adds to the Zen-inspiration behind the Kanso series.

The Kanso series epitomizes simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. As a result, you end up with a line of knives that have no bells and whistles, just performance. Kanso provides only what is required: exceptional steel, a razor-sharp edge that lasts, durability, balance, and precision. Only the best materials go into handcrafting the Kanso line.

The Shun Kanso 6” Utility is tailored for in-between tasks—tasks that are too big for a paring knife, and too small to complete with a chef’s knife. The easily maneuverable 6” form means you have complete cutting control, and the extreme light weight of the Kanso series only lends itself to that cause. If precision, exceptional quality, and minimalist design is what you seek, then look no further than Shun Kanso.

  • Multi-purpose, between a chef’s and paring in size
  • Hand-sharpened 16° double-bevel blade (32° comprehensive)
  • Heritage finish hides scratches, gives Kanso a rustic look that just improves with age
  • Steel: AUS10A—high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel
  • Contoured tagayasan or wenge wood
  • Blade length: 6 in. (15.3 cm)
  • Handcrafted in Japan

Take great care of your Shun knife, and it will take great care of you! Use a Combination WhetstoneLeveling Stone, and Knife Care Kit to keep your Shun knives in perfect condition.
