The proper name of this knife is santoku-bocho, or bunkabocho. In Japanese, santoku means ďknife of the three virtues.Ē This refers to its ability to perform the three acts of chopping, slicing, and dicing. Some chefs believe the santoku is more versatile than a nakiri, its only real competitor, in the home kitchen. The santoku has a relatively short blade, up to 200mm, and a rounded tip with a slight point. It is made with a two-sided, symmetrical 50:50 grind.

The Kohetsu AS santoku is one of the knives made exclusively for CKTG. We have specified a hardness of 64 HRC which we feel is a good number for this popular steel. It will thus hold a sharp edge longer but will take a bit more effort to sharpen. The core steel is clad in stainless steel for added strength and ease of daily maintenance.

A nicely finished ho wood handle featuring a traditional octagonal shape means this knife is light and easy to hold while being suitable for right- and left-handed users.
