A great introduction to the santoku shape from Yamawaki. Good length with an attractive damascus pattern. 

 

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: VG-10 stainless steel with damascus finish. VG-10 is a popular stainless steel, favoured by Japanese knife makers for its sharpness and edge retention. VG-10 is commonly used for damascus blades.

FINISH: Tsuchime - a traditional hand hammered finish. This effect not only looks great but also reduces contact with the blade, helping to ensure that whatever you are slicing doesn't stick.  

HANDLE: Hinoki (Japanese cyprus) wood handle with ebony ferrule. 

LENGTH: 180mm

MAKER: Yamawaki, Sakai City, Japan

BEST FOR: Stress-free entry to the world of Japanese knives.

 

SAUNDERS SAYS: "Santokus are as functional as they are beautiful. This one really pushes my buttons. In terms of functionality, it is similar to a laser, thin behind the edge and cuts through anything like butter."

 

The spec:

BLADE LENGTH: 180mm

OVERALL LENGTH: 330mm

BLADE HEIGHT: 45mm

THICKNESS AT HEEL: 2.4mm

These knives are hand-forged so there may be slight variations in measurements and finishes.
