This is a great knife at a really great price. It is a perfect introduction to Japanese style chef knives. Easy to maintain, easy to sharpen, and easy on the pocket.

The santoku 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 slicing, dicing, and mincing. The santoku is gaining in popularity every year in the west. They are shorter than chef knives but have a blade height which is proportionally larger.

The most notable difference is their blade geometry which incorporates a sheep’s foot shaped tip. The design 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 results in a knife that is more of a push cutter than a rocker.

The Kanehide TK Santoku is made with a mono steel construction of a proprietary semi stainless steel. The alloy is hardened to 61 Rockwell. The steel combines several attributes of a stainless steel (less prone to corrosion and thus less maintenance) with the edge holding and ease of sharpening associated with full carbon blades. The overall fit and finish is of a high level especially at this price point. The blade is coupled to a nice black pakka wood western style handle which exhibits a nice level of fit and finish.

    Beautifully balanced knife. It's the perfect length for pretty much anything in the kitchen and the stainless quality makes it a great work knife. Fit and finish is beautiful as with all the Kanehides I've seen. I would highly reccomend this to professionals and home cooks alike
