The Itto-Ryu White #2 Santoku is constructed from the ever popular Hitachi white paper #2 steel sandwiched between an outer cladding of a semi-stainless iron. The cladding is given an attractive and durable hammered kurouchi finish. This gives the knife a distinctive look while aiding greatly in its excellent food release properties. We really like the matte finish on the lower blade road that transitions to the polished inner core steel at the edge. We also admire the hand chiseled kanji that further enhances the look of this great looking blade.

This knife has a really good balance and very well executed grinds. The spine is fairly thick at the neck but tapers down to a very thin point. The blade is quite tall for a santoku of this length and features a classic profile that is suitable for users of all cutting styles.

This knife falls through food with an assured feel and an ease that belies its very attractive price. The handle is very basic but feels good in use. It has a nice texture that allows for a secure and safe grip even with wet hands. We think the Itto-Ryu White #2 Santoku represents one of the best values in our store, both in terms of fit and finish as well as its outstanding performance characteristics. Very highly recommended!

    I am wonderfully pleased with my first specialty knife purchase. The Itto-Ryu knife arrived quickly and exactly as described. It was kitchen ready out of the box. Appearance, quality, finish all exactly as I expected. I am very happy with this purchase. Rick

    5  Itto-Ryu arrived today!, December 17, 2018

    WOW!! My knife arrived today and I am completely impressed. The handle has a comfortable feel and this knife seems well balanced. I paid for the sharpening service and its 12 degree edge is scary sharp. This knife is priced competitively with local shops selling mass produced Santokus and you get so much more for the same $$. Cannot recommend this knife highly enough! Also, Sue provided an excellent level of customer service with the order and was very helpful with my questions! Thanks CKTG!

    I have the 210 gyuto,the Nakiri and have waited for this one to become available. Get any of this Itto-Ryu series and you won’t be disappointed. The edge as well as fit and finish are outstanding. The chestnut handle has a warm comfortable feel. CKTG has the best service ever. Thanks
