Matsubara Wavy Face Blue #2 Santoku 170mm custom is made by blacksmith Katsuto Tanaka who works from his famed shop in Omura City, Nagasaki Prefecture.

Aogami 2 carbon steel is undoubtedly one of the most popular steels used in the manufacture of kitchen knives. It is noted for its outstanding edge life and overall toughness. The core steel is covered san-mai style with a soft stainless steel which receives a lovely finish. The hammer marks you see on these blades are real, not stamped with a press. The cladding adds strength, reduces mass, and makes maintenance a lot easier.

This great looking santoku has a rather flat section at the heel end and then transitions into a nice curved belly about halfway along the edge. Blade height is generous especially for a santoku of this length. This is a robust blade in size and weight which will find favor with users looking for a knife that feels solid and stiff in hand and on the board.

We combined his blade with a sweet custom handle that our friend Isaiah Schroeder made using stabilized hardwoods. It's a perfect combination and one of the nicer knives we've done this year, especially at this price point.
