This gorgeous set includes the Shun Kanso Asian Multi-Prep Knife, a Japanese-style poultry knife, the Shun Kanso Boning/Fillet Knife, and the Shun Kanso Brisket Knife, ideal for trimming and slicing larger cuts of meat, including brisket, ham, roasts, and turkey.

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. The steel is Japanese AUS10A—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 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.
The Shun Kanso Asian Multi-Prep Knife is a Japanese-style boning knife. The 5-in. blade with its triangular shape is perfect for maneuvering around bones and between joints. Once you try it, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the complete control you gain as you process your poultry and other proteins. Its razor-sharp, 16° cutting edge makes removing breasts from bone easy and it cuts joint cartilage almost like butter. Scoring and trimming is a breeze, too—and you can use the blade's spine for scraping. Once you've used this Japanese boning knife, you'll reach for it again and again.
6.5-in. Boning/Fillet Knife
The Shun Kanso Boning/Fillet Knife is a rigid knife with a razor-sharp edge, and it's adept at key kitchen chores. For boning, the narrow, sharp, curved blade gets in close to the bone, making it easy to separate meat from bone. Even fibrous tissue is no match for Shun's extremely sharp edge. It’s perfect for trimming the silver skin from a tenderloin or roast or even making your own cutlets. The narrow blade reduces the drag as you cut against the meat, so cutting is fast and easy. When it comes to filleting fish, the blade's 6.5-in. length is just right to glide through the body of the fish, quickly removing bones and skin for a perfect fillet. The contoured tagayasan handle provides a secure grip for excellent control.
12-in. Brisket Knife with traditional Japanese saya, or sheath (made in China)
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.
