Blade Type

The Santoku knife, a classic in Japanese kitchens, translates to "three virtues," symbolizing its proficiency in slicing, dicing, and mincing. With a shorter, versatile blade and a balanced design, it's ideal for a range of tasks, from cutting meat to chopping vegetables, making it a beloved all-purpose tool.

Steel Type

VG10 steel, a high-end Japanese stainless steel, is renowned for its superior edge retention and sharpness. Enriched with carbon and chromium, it offers excellent corrosion resistance. The addition of cobalt, molybdenum, and vanadium enhances its hardness and durability, making VG10 steel ideal for a great everyday workhorse knife steel.

Recommended Maintenance

Store it in a dry environment using magnetic strips, knife rolls, or sayas. Avoid hitting hard or frozen objects and twisting the blade while cutting. These knives are not dishwasher safe. Clean with hot water and a soft cloth, and dry immediately after use to prevent rust spots on the high carbon steel. For more information please read the blog below.

Lovely 170mm Santoku knife

This knife is very attractive and feels good in my hand. Since it is stainless steel it will need careful attention to keep it sharp, but I’m happy to do that.
