This product is currently sold out.
The go to santoku just got more versatile with a stainless steel cladding.
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: Aogami (blue paper) super steel. This is very similar to white paper steel but with tungsten and chromium added to it which helps with edge retention and slows down rusting. The super part indicates the highest amount of carbon steel at up to 1.5% out of the blue series steels. This has then been hardened to 63-64 rockwell making it very hard and capable of retaining an edge for a very long time. The blue steel core has then been wrapped in stainless steel making maintenance easy.
HANDLE: Octagonal magnolia handles with ebony ferrule.
MAKER: Yamawaki - Sakai City, Japan
BEST FOR: Those wanting one of the best cutting steels on the planet at an acceptable price.
