We really like Aogami Super for use in knife blades. It is a top shelf steel developed by the Hitachi Metals Company. This high carbon alloy has several important elements added to the mix, including tungsten, vanadium, chromium, molybdenum, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, and silicon. Because of this, Aogami Super is a steel that can take and hold a very acute edge angle. It is also relatively easy to sharpen as compared to other carbon steels. We are seeing more and more makers add this great alloy to their knife catalogs.

This is a classic santoku design. It is a multi-purpose knife, but with a slight vegetable bias. Santoku means three virtues or to solve three problems. The virtues or problems are said to be slicing, dicing, and mincing. It is a tall blade that offers increased finger-to-board clearance, while the shorter length makes it ideal for handling a wide variety of produce and proteins.

This fine santoku is made in Tosa especially for our CKTG customers. Anyone seeking a knife made from the best steel, with a great grind and an affordable price, can stop their search now!

      Beautiful Knife But Has One Flaw, February 9, 2021

    I really love this knife. It is beautiful, light, comfortable, super sharp out of the box, and it is holding an edge. But the shiny cladding is very soft. It gets scratches like crazy, just from normal use. None of my other knives do this. I've only had it about a week, but after some time I'm not sure how this will fare. We'll see. Anyway, if you want a great super sharp super light performer, this is it. But if you want something to hold a beautiful appearance, this might not be it. Oh the reactive area on the bottom looks super cool once it gets some patina.
