Occupying a sweet spot between a gyuto and a large petty, the santoku justifiably earns its reputation as a great all-around knife. In fact it fulfills the primary knife role in many kitchens. It also earns its name. Santoku, meaning “three virtues” in Japanese, is an all-purpose knife with a taller blade profile than a gyuto. Its three virtues are the knife’s ability to cut fish, meat, and vegetables. Santokus have flatter bellies than gyutos and are ideal for push cutting or chopping. The profile makes them easy to sharpen too.

HAP40 steel is at the top of our knife steel list. This excellent alloy is manufactured by Hitachi Metals. It is a fine grained alloy that can take a really sharp edge. It can also be sharpened with relative ease. The inner core is further strengthened and protected by a fully stainless outer cladding.

We are very fortunate it be able to offer these exclusively made knives to you. They represent a merging of traditional (methods) with modern (materials) and they would make a great addition to your kitchen knife roll or block.
