A heavyweight santoku made out of one of the best performing powder steels around.

 

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: ZDP189. This crazy powder steel is made by Hitachi. It contains 3% carbon and 20% chromium which is fairly unusual to say the least. As one might expect with these numbers the steel is capable of insane hardness. Obviously this comes at a price, both cost wise and sharpenability.

FINISH: Migaki (polished).

HANDLE: Western Micarta handle with mosaic pin

LENGTH: 180mm in length.

MAKER: Ohishi - Niigata City, Japan

BEST FOR: Those wanting one of the best cutting steels on the planet.

 

SAUNDERS SAYS: "This full range is hefty and will certainly last a lifetime. There is something very reassuring about these in the hand."

 

The spec: 

BLADE LENGTH: 187mm (211mm)

OVERALL LENGTH: 325mm (365mm) 

BLADE HEIGHT: 39mm (48mm) 

THICKNESS AT HEEL: 3.6mm (4.2mm) This quickly tapers down the knife

 

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