“Santoku" means an all-purpose knife, including meat, fish, and vegetables. It is designed to have both features of Japanese Nakiri (vegetable knife) and Japanese Gyuto (meat knife). Being highly convenient and practical, it is most widely used in households. Recommended for those new to Japanese kitchen knives and novice cooks.

VG-10 Stainless Steel
VG-10 (Takefu Special Steel Co., Ltd.) is one of the most popular and highly regarded Japanese Stainless Steels for making cutlery. It has strong corrosion-resistance and can provide very good edge sharpness and edge retention. VG-10 belongs to a group of steels called "Cobalt Steels”, but it also contains Vanadium, which improves its strength, toughness and edge retention.

Damascus is a laminated steel knife made of several layers of different steel materials. The center of the blade is made of hard steel for sharpness, and both sides are covered with multiple soft steel materials. The multiple steels are metallurgically joined, not by plating or glue. The more the blade is forged, the more complex the ripples become, and the more beautiful the unique grain pattern becomes.

The handles on these knives are Octagonal Oak wood dye Japanese Lacquer (Urushi) that recalls the images of Japanese tradition.

The coating film of Urushi exudes a warm sense of intimacy when in contact with the skin that can almost be likened to the touch of an infant’s skin. With antibacterial and disinfectant properties, it is also provides an exceptional sense of security. urushi is a totally natural lacquer, and with use develops a distinct, deeply refined luster and texture which cannot be reproduced with chemically developed coating materials. This naturally fosters strong feelings of attachment and deference.

Incredible Knife, Incredible Service

I went to Mushashi to browse their selection. As soon as I walked in, someone asked if they could help me and what I was looking for. He explained all of the types of knives that they had and showed me an area of utility knives. He let me test them out and also let me compare the traditional Japanese style with a more traditional knife handle to feel the difference first hand. I fell in love with the Santoku VG-10!! The feel is amazing in my hand and cuts perfectly. It is a beautiful knife and I look forward to using it for many years!! I can't wait to buy the next knife for my set!

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.
