The santoku knife is a really great all-around kitchen blade. It has a deft feel and tall blade which endow the knife with a great deal of versatility in its cutting capabilities. Santoku translates to three virtues and the acts of slicing, chopping, and dicing are tackled with aplomb by this classic design. Many western chefs and home cooks look to the santoku as their go-to blade for many general cutting tasks. The symmetrical 50/50 grind, coupled with the gently curved belly, make this a good choice for cooks of all types and cutting preferences.

Master Blacksmith Katsuyasu Kamo starts with a core (hagane) of VG10 stainless steel to which he then applies an outer layer (jigane) of a softer stainless steel to protect the inner core while adding strength and durability. This outer layer is decorated with a beautiful suminagashi (damascus) finish which is lightly etched to further enhance the lovely pattern.

The great look of this knife is accentuated by its handle design and construction. A solid stainless bolster gives the knife a very sleek look and makes for a sanitary and easy to maintain junction between blade and handle. The bolster then attaches to the well-crafted handle which is fashioned from a multi-ply oak wood.

      Great knife!, September 10, 2020
    Posted By: Lance Everett - verified customer

    Great quality knife! The only downside to my purchase was that despite getting the sharpening service, the blade was not too sharp. Other than that I would definitely recommend getting one of these quality knives and learn how to sharpen it yourself! It was a worthwhile purchase for sure!

      Nice, not practical, slightly disappointing, August 22, 2020
    Posted By: Tim C. - verified customer

    This knife is very nice: design is great and consistent with the product description and visuals. I find it a bit heavy compared to my other knives, but that is probably a matter of taste (if you like sturdy knives, this one is for you). However, it is really not sharp: some old, worn out IKEA knives I own are sharper than this one out of the box. This was slightly disappointing.

      Excellent knife, August 1, 2020

    I purchased this one for my mother as a gift. Her ancient knives were driving me crazy when I cooked at her house. This is a great quality knife, it's low maintenance, and is a good looker!

      KAMO VG10 Santoku, September 7, 2019
    Posted By: wanda eisenman - verified customer

    Bought this knife because it was made by the senior Kamo San from Takefu Knife Village. Thrilled to have it, it is a great working knife. It's great having an artisan knife for my daily use.
