The Kanehide PS60 line of kitchen knives represents a great bang for the buck option for cooks of all stripes, be they professional or home chefs. They are constructed using PS60 or Pure Steel 60. This is a derivative of the popular Gin5 razor blade alloy made by Hitachi. Kanehide takes the base steel and subjects it to a special heat treatment and cryogenic freezing regiment. The result is harder steel, up to HRC 60, and an edge that is tougher and more wear resistant than the original would be.

"Santoku" translates to Three Virtues, which is a perfect description of the three cutting tasks the knife performs well: slicing, dicing, and mincing. These knives are a becoming very popular in both home and professional kitchens. Their blade geometry is somewhat gyuto like but is taller and incorporates a sheep's foot tip. A sheep's foot design essentially draws the spine ("backstrap") down to the front, with very little clearance above the horizontal cutting plane when the blade is resting naturally from heel to forward cutting edge.

This is a great choice for chefs looking for a well-priced Japanese knife that is easy to maintain and easy on the pocket. This knife is available with a magnolia and red dyed pakka wood handle.
