Santoku knife, Shirogami 1 with stainless steel cladding, nashiji finish - Goko
This product is currently sold out.
The "do everything" santoku shape 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: The core steel is made from Shirogami 1 (white paper) carbon steel which has been clad with stainless steel. This means that only the exposed carbon steel along the edge will discolour.
FINISH: Nashi. This is the Japanese word for a pear and this finish is said to look like the skin of a pear. Rough, with a matt finish ensuring vegetables are released during cutting.
HANDLE: Burnt chestnut with a plastic ferrule.
MAKER: Goko - Kashiwa city, Japan
BEST FOR: Those wanting the performance of carbon steel but with the ease of use of stainless steel.
