Perfect for barbecue chefs on the go, this gorgeous set of premium Shun Kanso knives comes with a knife roll for easy portability. Included are three key Japanese blades for boning, slicing and serving grilled meats with finesse. This high-performance, handcrafted travel set makes an excellent gift for Dad.

  • Blades of highly refined, high-carbon vanadium stainless steel take and hold a razor-sharp edge.
  • Heritage-finish blades provide a rustic look that hides scratches and improves with age.
  • Angled handles are made of dark tagayasan, known as "iron sword wood," an extremely dense wood traditionally used to make Samurai sword handles.
  • Heavy-duty nylon knife roll has 8 slots for knives.
  • Knives handcrafted in Japan.

4-piece set includes:

  • 5" honesuki.
  • 6" boning/fillet knife.
  • 12" brisket knife with beechwood saya (sheath).
  • Nylon knife roll.

Please note: Knife roll is counted as an individual piece.

More Information

  • Boning/fillet knife (gokujo) has a narrow, curved blade for efficient boning and filleting of meat and fish; also excels for trimming meat and slicing fillets.
  • Brisket knife has a long, hollow-ground blade that carves elegant slices in a single pass. Includes a beechwood saya (protective sheath).

Use & Care


  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.


  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
  • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing once a week, you should not need to sharpen your knife more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener designed to sharpen at a 16-degree angle, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect BBQ Starter Knife Set I BBQ at least 4 times per week with some catering jobs in there. As much as I trim different cuts of meat it's vital to have the proper knives to make the job easy. This set allows me to trim and slice meat easily each time. I had previously used a set of knives that were not the quality of Shun and it made the work tiresome. The Brisket knife makes slicing briskets a breeze. The boning knife makes cutting through chickens simple and the fillet knife has made trimming meat a pleasure. The best part about the set is the knife bag that comes with it so you can store them safely away. Best knives I've purchased, hands downs!!!
