Gihei HAP40 Santoku 165mm Custom is constructed using HAP40 PM semi-stainless steel as the inner core (hagane) with a tough outer layer (jigane) made from softer stainless steel. HAP40 is a really great steel for kitchen knives, especially when heat treated to 65-66 HRC. The heat treatment applied to Gihei blades is especially noteworthy. This combination results in a knife that takes a great edge and stays sharp through many long prep sessions. The Gihei company is located in Sanjo City and is one of the most innovative small blacksmith shops operating in the Prefecture.

Santoku knives are very popular in Japan for home cooks. They're do it all blades that are easy to handle.

We love the way that Atsushi Hosokawa and his associates use the best steels and techniques. Partnering the fine blade is a lovely custom octagonal handle. Sweet looks, great performance, and a fair price combine to make this versatile custom handled santoku a unique value.
