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

Japanese SG2, also known as R2 steel, is a high-end, powdered metallurgy stainless steel and one of the finest knife-making steels available in Japan. It is a favourite of many for its exceptional hardness and edge retention. Its fine, uniform grain structure enables razor-sharp edges, all the while holding an edge for much longer than Carbon steel knives, without needing to be concerned about rust appearing.

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.

Excellent quality and finish!

Bought this santoku to replace my current one and I must say I'm very impressed with the quality and finish of this knife. It's my first SG2 knife and I might consider buying other types in this material. It's super sharp out of box and cuts like Lazer. The handle is very comfortable too and most of all The Guys at ChefsEdge got this delivered super quick! Kudos ChefsEdge Team

This knife is very well balanced, a pleasure to use & cuts like a laser out of the box. It's so sharp my wife is scared to go near it so I expect it to stay sharp for a long time lol
