The Santoku, which translates in to English as either “three-purpose" or “three virtues”, gained this name because it is well suited to cutting meat, fish, and vegetables. Santoku knives are often recommended as a multi-purpose kitchen knife for home cooks, and it is more commonly found in Japanese households than Gyuto knives.

Aogami No.2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to Shirogami No.2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Aogami No.2 is very similar to Shirogami No.2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention.

Kurouchi Finish, the unprocessed (black) part on the top side of the blade has already developed a dark patina, which protects the blade and gives it a traditional Japanese look.

The edge is the carbon steel which is examined good carbon steel, forged and clad stainless. Since the side is stainless steel, it is hard to rust and it is sanitary.

Simply perfect

This is my first Japanese kitchen knife, and I can’t be more satisfied about it. The feeling it gives when cutting meat or fish or vegetables is simply awesome. It’s really difficult to use other knives now!!!

For everyone reading this review, THIS IS A WARNING;
You will NOT want to use anything else again after you try one.
And as I always say, there is nothing safer than cooking with a really sharp knife because you don't fight with the food.
The most dangerous knife are the one who aren't sharp.

Kitchen Prep made easy!!

This is my 3rd pure steel Japanese kitchen knife that I have. And as a professional Chef I couldn't now use anything else. They are a dream to use. They stay very sharp. And a couple of flicks on the wet stone and they are sharpened to perfection again! I am LOVING my new Musashi knife and I have already recommended Musashi to a friend!

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
