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.

HAP40 is a powder metallurgy High Speed Tool Steel from Hitachi Metals Ltd. It’s rich chemical composition and fine microstructure allows the production of knives that posses an outstanding balance of hardness, toughness and edge retention. In terms of cutting performance, edge retention, some knife experts believe that HAP-40 is probably the best Japanese cutlery steel on the market.

A beautiful knife to admire and cook with

I bought this knife (accidentally picking it over the smaller Santoku) and found it to be a perfect size. Amazingly sharp and beautifully made. Great communication.

I've had this knife (a 170mm) for about a month, using it daily. I'm a home cook with no claims to great knife skills, but I have a few good Japanese knives in stainless and carbon steels and I keep them sharp with decent stones. This is my first in HAP40 High Speed Tool Steel. Everything about this knife works well for me: very nice fit, finish and balance, sharp out of the box, not hard to sharpen and holds its edge very well. Highly recommended.

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.
