Product information

Translated literally, Santoku means three virtues, and it excels in handling meat, fish, and vegetables at a high level. Crafted from AUS-8A stainless steel, this series undergoes heat treatment and tempering, effortlessly achieving a razor-sharp edge that endures over time. Yoshihiro blade smiths enhance the steel with Molybdenum for hardness, toughness, corrosion resistance, and high tensile strength. The addition of Vanadium contributes to strength, toughness, and heat resistance, fostering a desired fine grain structure for even wear resistance.

These knives, single piece forged with a full tang and bolster, exemplify quality craftsmanship. The western-style black Pakkawood handle not only ensures comfort but also provides durability, toughness, and heat resistance, enhancing your culinary experience.
