Shun Kanso 6" Utility Knife

In size, the Shun Kanso 6-in. Utility Knife is between a chef’s knife and a paring knife, but its blade is narrower and straighter. It's perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. Some cooks like to use it in their hand, too—almost like a large paring knife or petty knife. Others like its smaller size as an alternative to the chef’s knife. Its very slightly curved belly enables it to do moderate rocking cuts. It’s nimble enough to peel an onion in hand, then slice it up in short order. Utility knives are sometimes called sandwich knives because they work well on almost everything that goes into a sandwich—from thin-skinned vegetables such as tomatoes, to meats and cheeses.

Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means "simplicity," but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. In Kanso, we took away anything that doesn't matter and kept everything that does: high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control.
