Fantastic build on this knife. It handles so well that I find myself reaching for it over my Shun! My girlfriend absolutely adores this one and will use this over any of my longer chef knives. Highly recommend!

I bought the Kan Core Basic set and received them two weeks ago. Some days before I placed the order I called Barney a craftsman in the chat. Now I realize that was not true. He is an artist! The knives are stunningly beautiful and ridiculously sharp. Really happy with them and can not recommend them highly enough!

I bought this knife to be our primary prep knife in our camper. It looked nice and I had heard good things. I was not prepared for how much I was going to love this thing. It feels really great in my hand. In a pinch grip the back side of the knife is smoothed so that I don’t get irritation on my hand from lots of chopping. It cuts extremely smoothly, the balance and weight feel great. I will be replacing my home knifes with Kan knives now.

After many years using a western style 8 inch Santoku, I decided my entire arsenal needed an upgrade and got the Kan Core Basic Set.
This Santoku is a great knife to have on hand. I’ve used a Santoku as my primary knife for years and a Chef for years before that. I’m glad the set has both since I’ve found I like them for different things. I reach for the Santoku for most chopping, mincing or dicing jobs and it’s excellent for it. It’s extremely sharp, a pleasure to look at, comfortable and beautifully balanced. Of all the knives in the set, this required the most sharpening though that’s a consequence of my using too much force when chopping against a bamboo board. That being said, the sharpening required after a month was pretty mild (1000 grit plus 6000 for polishing) and it came out as good as new. I can’t recommend it enough.
