The Kajiwara kurouchi 165mm santoku is another great all around chef knife. With a good bit of heft, a thick blade, and a unique complex grind this santoku is truly a workhorse knife. The sheepsfoot blade profile of a santoku lends it to chopping and push cutting techniques, as opposed to rocking, not to say you canít use a rocking technique, because you can, itís just not optimal. Being only 165mm or about 6.5 inches long, this size will appeal to those who feel that a full size gyuto is just too unwieldy or cumbersome. Although this is not a featherweight Japanese knife, its heft does add to its chopping capability, and with Aogami #2 steel stepping up to the plate on the edge, you can be assured that this knife can get extremely sharp, and hold that edge for much longer than the stainless steel models youíll find in many kitchen and home stores. Remember this knife is 100% carbon steel, and should be dried before storage to prevent rust. In the event that you do find some surface rust, fear not: steel wool, or a heavy scouring pad aided by olive or vegetable oil, will clean it right off. No matter what, a knife with this pedigree at this price is not easy to come by.

    4  Awesome knife, November 11, 2015
    Posted By: Sean JASINSKI

    I'd love to rate it 5 stars but it came to me with terribly uneven bevels. It took me about an hour to set the bevels to how I wanted them (15deg with a 18deg micro bevel). Took it up to a 15k shapton and the knife is a razor. Holds an edge extremely well and gets unbelievably sharp, would have been 5 stars but the bevels were pretty bad. Even wi the bevels issue, I'd have no problem recommending this knife as its still a great knife for the money.

    Let me begin by saying that this knife is BEAUTIFUL. Opening it was so exciting. Unfortunately, the knife wasn't very sharp out of the box. The knife became razor sharp after a little time on my 6000/1000 stone, but after one day at work, became rather dull again. I am not sure if Aogami #2 is a soft steel. To conclude, this knife is a beautiful piece, but if you are looking for something functional, go with something a little more low maintenance .
