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.

Shirogami No.2 has minimal impurities and a very fine grain structure, so it is ideal for fine cutting tools such as Japanese traditional-style knives. Despite being a ‘simple’ carbon steel, Shirogami No.2 has very good edge retention and it is also very easy to re-sharpen. Recommended for first-time users of Japanese traditional-style knives.

It is a kitchen knife finished by black forging, which is a traditional Japanese manufacturing method. A double-edged type with steel in the center and soft iron on both sides. Yasuki Steel White No. 2 is used for the steel, an octagonal buffalo handle is placed on the handle, and the black surface is filed to create a high-class type.

Beautiful and High Quality

The knife was packaged really well, and feels solid. The handle is nice and the blade is well balanced. They do require more care than a standard kitchen knife but they make prep work so much faster.

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.
