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.

Sliver No.3 Stainless Steel
Sliver No.3 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is a very fine-grained Stainless Steel that can attain edge sharpness and edge retention comparable to some High Carbon Steels. It has even been used to create corrosion-resistant versions of Japanese traditional single bevel knives. It is very popular with both professionals and home cooks and is generally believed to be slightly easier to sharpen than VG10.

Migaki (Polished) line of knives feature beautiful edge geometry and are quite thin behind the edge and at the spine. They have an excellent cutting feel and are light and feel very nimble and comfortable in the hand.

Nice knife for the cost

Just received this knife in the mail today. Gave it a pretty good kitchen test and it held up just fine. The only issue I have is with the fit and finish. The grinding on the spine is a little wonky. Thought at first the knife was bent. Easily fixed however. Also have a little issue with the choyal. It's not ground evenly on both sides. Looks like maybe it slipped on the grinder and ate into the choyal edge just a bit. Again not a big deal. It's easily fixed. For the price this knife is a heck of a deal. Will be ordering the Nakiri version of this knife in the future.

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.
