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.

Good knives if you have the skill to straighten them.

As I said in the title these are good knives for someone that has the skill and knows how to straighten a knife, as a knife maker myself this was not a problem.
I bought six of these knives for a sharpening class I’m holding and they will do just fine for me now that I have straightened them out however having to straighten six out of six of them seems a bit much.

Obliged

Incredibly grateful to customer service for their efforts. You can tell Musashi is a loving group of people, and it shows in the blades. This knife is so beautiful (and great) you could fall in love with it. It fits perfectly in my hand, it cuts ever more lightly. I can't wait to enjoy it more.

Awesome!

I bought this hoping it would be a good starting knife and it absolutely is. It came sharp, however, sharpening the knife with an extra fine stone made it even better!

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.
