The Kajiwara kurouchi 165mm santoku is another great all-around chef knife. With a good bit of heft, a thick blade, and a unique complex grind this santoku is truly a workhorse knife. The sheep's foot blade profile of a santoku lends it to chopping and push cutting techniques, as opposed to rocking, not to say you canít use a rocking technique, because you can, itís just not optimal. Being only 165mm or about 6.5 inches long, this size will appeal to those who feel that a full-size gyuto is just too unwieldy or cumbersome. Although this is not a featherweight Japanese knife, its heft does add to its chopping capability, and with Aogami #2 steel stepping up to the plate on the edge, you can be assured that this knife can get extremely sharp, and hold that edge for much longer than the stainless steel models youíll find in many kitchen and home stores. Remember this knife is 100% carbon steel and should be dried before storage to prevent rust. In the event that you do find some surface rust, fear not: steel wool, or a heavy scouring pad aided by olive or vegetable oil, will clean it right off. No matter what, a knife with this pedigree at this price is not easy to come by.

      Favorite Santoku, April 13, 2022
    Posted By: Bryan

    This is my very first Japanese knife. It came sharp out of the box, and with just a little work, it is now screaming sharp. I love profile of the blade and the feel of the handle. My only complaint is the blade I received was bent straight out of the box. It curves to one side and the bend is very noticeable. This seems like a flaw that should have been seen before selling the knife. I don't want to bend it back because I'm worried I'll break the blade or damage the knife. Even though the knife is bent, I still really enjoy using it.

    Took it up to a 15k shapton and the knife is a razor. Holds an edge extremely well and gets unbelievably sharp, would have been 5 stars but for the bevels. I'd have no problem recommending this knife as its still a great knife for the money.
