Warranting its name "Santoku, or three virtues," this knife boldly handles meat, fish & vegetables.
At the crux of this exceedingly sharp and hardwearing knife lies the VG-10: an exquisite steel of Japanese origin and invention, a corrosion and stain resistant composite of iron, carbon, manganese, molybdendum, cobalt, chromium and vanadium. It has a sublimely thin blade, a traditional octagonal wooden handle, and superb balance to ensure that cuts will be dispatched precisely. Our Masanobu VG-10 series come to us from the city of Seki: since the 13th century home to most of Japan's legendary knife makers. Japan's most advanced knife-making techniques go into this blade, all the while it embraces classic traits that have typified Japanese kitchen knives for centuries.
