This Santoku is handcrafted in Niigata Japan, one of the most popular towns for forging metals as well as making Sake since Samurai times.
Santoku is a short, usually between 150mm-195mm in blade length, round-tipped Japanese knife with a wide surface of blade.
The shape is a fusion of Nakiri and chef knife for you to do everything with one knife.
The word “Santoku “ is originally from Buddhism word but also means “ 3 ways in one “ in Japanese language and as you can guess, it’s the knife for everyone and for everything except bones, frozen food or extremely hard ingredients.
The thin convex shape of blade is called “ Hamaguriba “ ( Clamshell blade ) and is the key for the superior sharpness and strength of Japanese knives.
The 3 layered blade is made of core Molybdenum - Vanadium stainless steel forged with 13 Chrome stainless steel from both sides.
The handle has a comfortable grip and is made of hygienic Black Pakka Wood, secured with 3 rivets.
Black Pakka Wood is resin treated hard wood and is much more durable compared to natural woods.
We love this Santoku knife for simple “ Back to basic “ design and for the amazing performance.
This knife is handcrafted by experienced knife smiths with love, pride and maybe some scratches from their hammers.
Each knife is hand - sharpened prior to shipping for you to experience the superior sharpness.
The size, weight or volume of knives may slightly differ from piece to piece.
