Blade & Handle
This line of knives features a beautiful hammered, non-stick-coated blade. The fluororesin coating is made for a hygienic purpose and creates exceptional food release.. The core steel of VG-10 is heat-treated to 60 HRC for excellent edge retention without sacrificing undue ductility and toughness. These knives are thin behind the edge with a 60/40 grind that helps facilitate delicate, precise cuts and minimize wedging in harder foods like daikon and carrots. We recommend these to anyone looking for high-performance geometry in a great-looking knife with better toughness and ease of sharpening compared to harder powdered steels.
Each knife is carefully finished by the craftsmen of Sakai Takayuki so you can rest assured that the knife will perform right out of the box.
Santoku in Japanese transliterates as "three virtues" so they are otherwise known as "three purpose" knives. The three purposes which a santoku is meant to fulfill is cutting meat, vegetables and fish. Its diminutive size and unique shape have made it very popular at home not only in Japan but in the United States as well as more and more home cooks are finding its versatility appealing without committing to a larger or more specialized knife.
