12” Brisket Knife - Shun Kanso
30cm (12’’) Carving Knife with Granton edge
SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL WAY TO CUT A PERFECT SLICE
The Shun Kanso Brisket Knife is ideal for carving 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.
SHUN KANSO LINE—
Kanso means “simplicity,” but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. Influenced by a design principle based on the Zen philosophy of simplicity, the Shun Kanso collection was designed with only the indispensable elements in mind. Plainly put: with these knives, nothing is lacking and nothing is superfluous. In Kanso, Shun took away anything that does not matter and kept everything that does—high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control. The steel is Japanese AUS10A, a highly refined, high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel that takes a razor-sharp edge and holds it longer. Kanso’s Heritage finish hides scratches and gives Kanso a rustic look that just improves with age. The handle is made of tagayasan wood, sometimes known as “iron sword wood.” 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.
