All-Round Knife -- An alternative to a chef’s knife. Santoku means "three virtues" in Japanese, that is, excelling at slicing, dicing and mincing.
Push-Cut Master -- The 7-inch santoku knife is typically shorter than a chef’s knife with noticeably different blade geometry, featuring a sheep’s foot rounded tip and a straight edge that increases the cutting area and excels at downward cut, making it a push-cut master. The evenly spaced hollow-ground indentations on the blade prevent food from sticking to it.
Exceptional Sharpness and Precision -- The blade core is made of Japanese AUS-10V high carbon steel rated at 60-62HRC hardness ensuring effortless cutting and long edge retention. The shockingly thin 15°±1° double bevel edge excels at fine cuts. With high sharpness and precision, it cuts food like a breeze.
Breathtaking Raindrop Pattern -- The blade, forged with 67 layers of steel, presents stunning raindrop pattern with high artistic value that is permanent and rust resistant.
Ergonomic Handle -- The handle has a nice crescent shape ending with a smooth curve on the butt, which fits like a glove, providing safe grip and confident control. It’s made of G10 material that won’t deform thus guarantees life-long durability.
Easy Maintenance -- 66 layers of stainless steel cladding over the blade core produce exceptional corrosion resistance and rust resistance. Less time needed for the maintenance.
