Our best selling shape in my favourite steel, while slightly reactive this is a breeze to sharpen.

 

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: Shirogami (white paper) 2 steel. It is a reactive carbon steel which is easy to sharpen and holds an edge well. This steel is frequently chosen for traditional-style Japanese knives.  

FINISH: Polished with a sandblasted primary bevel.

HANDLE: D shaped ho wood handle with right hand bias.

LENGTH: 170mm

MAKER: Yauchi, Sakai City, Japan

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

 

SAUNDERS SAYS: "Perfect balance and weight, this knife will make light work of any prep."

 

The spec:

BLADE LENGTH: 173mm

OVERALL LENGTH: 322mm

BLADE HEIGHT: 46mm

THICKNESS AT HEEL: 3.4mm but this quickly tapers down the knife.

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