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.

The blade is a triple lamination that reproduces a traditional Damascus surface. The two Damascus outer layers are each made of 36 alternating forged layers of Pure-Nickel and SUS410 stainless steel polished to reveal a pattern that is as unique as a fingerprint.

The central core material SKD11 (alloy tool steel) used for the blade edge is a performance steel that is incredibly rich in Carbon equal to the famed Yasuki Aogami, and is tempered to the Rockwell 62-64 for exceptional sharpness and edge holding and properties.

Originally SKD11 steel was created for cutting metal. Its suitability for knife edges' comes from its resistance to abrasion and its ability to hold a cutting edge.
Also its high content of Chromium greatly contributes to the blade's anti-corrosion. Damascus outer Pure-Nickel layers will never rust.
This 73 layered material produces a rust resistant blade that will maintain its beautiful pattern perfection over the years.

I have bought this very special Knives in the past. They are from skilled craftspeople and are works of art. Hopefully young people will follow as apprentices as I note many of these skilled artisans are older. Both the Handles and Blades are excellent. They are so nice I bout a transparent knife holder

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.
