If you want a knife that will stay sharp for ever and don't mind about the slight challenge with sharpening, this high speed steel santoku is for you.

 

SHAPE: Santoku. Named after the three best things to do with this knife - slicing, dicing and mincing. It is the classic veg prep knife with both good breadth and width. 

STEEL: High speed steel was once reserved for drill bits and powered cutting tools as it could handle higher temperatures without losing its temper. It is an incredibly hard steel hence the slight difficulties with sharpening but, once it is sharp, it has incredible edge retention.

FINISH: Polished with a sandblasted primary bevel.

HANDLE: Ho wood octagonal handle suitable for both right and left handed people with a buffalo horn ferrule. 

LENGTH: 170mm

MAKER: Yauchi, Sakai City, Japan

BEST FOR: Those looking for a high performance stainless steel knife.

 

SAUNDERS SAYS: "Looks like a normal santoku but, good god, this thing is sharp and thin"

 

The spec:

BLADE LENGTH: 170mm

OVERALL LENGTH: 320mm

BLADE HEIGHT: 48mm
