Tsukiji Masamoto knives are prized for the quality of their workmanship and materials, and are renowned for their durability. (Mr. Hirano likes to joke that his business is suffering because his knives have such a long lifespan, and customers mostly visit his shop for the occasional knife sharpening and fixing.) The popular Santoku is a versatile blade. (Santoku means Ďthree virtuesí) It is a cross between a Nakiri and Gyuto, originally intended for the home cook. It is a multipurpose knife that can be used for cutting meat, fish, vegetables and fruit. This VG Santoku measures 180mm along the edge. It is a fairly light knife that has a well balanced feel partly attributable to the Duracon western style handle. The knives in this line feature a tough and low maintenance steel known as Hyper Molybdenum Vanadium. It is a fine grained yet rugged alloy that allows for great edges and long lasting retention. Note that the edges are sharpened with a 70/30 bevel. If Mr. Hirano wanted to, he could sell more knives by eschewing this great longevity. We are glad he choses not to do so!
