CKTG Santoku Saya B
Santoku knives are really great all-around kitchen blades. They have a deft feel and tall blade which endows 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 most cutting tasks.

The stunning looks of the Kurosaki R2 Santoku are only bested by its performance. Kurosaki-san and his brother have used R2 stainless steel as the core metal which they then cover, san-mai style, with another stainless steel cladding. The core steel is hardened to 62 HRC. The distinctive way in which they finish these knives is not for looks alone. The unique and very attractive cladding shimmers in the light as it releases food in an almost magical way. As always, the convex grind on these knives is outstanding and ingredient separation is as good as it gets. Out of the box sharpness is right up with the very best knives we carry.

The striking looks of the blade are complemented by a lovely traditional octagonal rosewood wa handle. Fine balance, stunning looks, and outstanding performance are the hallmarks for this great knife line. We strongly recommend that you try one.

      Great Knife, January 20, 2020
    Posted By: Alex - verified customer

    This knife is amazing and not just the look of it. The knife is fairly light but it is weighted almost perfect for my pinch gripe. I had chef knives sharpen it and it is razor sharp. Can't wait to get a few more to add to the collection.

      Great blade!, February 4, 2018

    This knife is really well done. Craftsmanship is stellar and the fit and finish are top notch.I would really like to see a little more weight in the handle because the knife is so so light, but that is a personal judgment. I would recommend this knife to anyone.
