Kanso // Bread Knife // 9"
Do you bake or buy whole loaves of bread? Then this will be one of the most-used knives in your kitchen. The Shun Kanso Bread Knife cuts through bread quickly and easily, whether it's crusty or tender—and with less crumbing.
The secret is the wide serrations. Instead of smaller "sawtooth serrations," Kanso's wide, undulating serrations gently glide through bread so there's less tearing and less crumbing. Cakes and pastries benefit from the Shun Kanso Bread Knife's smooth cutting capabilities, too.
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.
