Masamoto Sohonten knives are prized for the quality of their workmanship and materials and are renowned for their durability. The popular Santoku is a versatile blade. (Santoku means ‘three virtues’) It is a cross between a Nakiri and Gyuto, originally intended for the home cook. It is a multipurpose knife that can be used for cutting meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit.

This VG Santoku measures 180mm along the edge. It is a fairly light knife that has a well-balanced feel partly attributable to the Duracon western style handle. The knives in this line feature tough and low maintenance steel known as Hyper Molybdenum Vanadium. It is a fine-grained yet rugged alloy that allows for great edges and long lasting retention. Note that the edges are sharpened with a 70/30 bevel.

      Masamoto VG Santoku
    Posted By: Thomas J. - verified customer

    A excellent knife for citrus, onions and Tomatoes. Handle produces no hot spots. Blade has good geometry. Shaving sharp right out of the box. Stays sharp with occasional stropping. A stainless workhorse that performs like a racehorse.
