Okeya Blue #2 Wa Santoku 165mm

The father and son team operating the small Okeya blacksmith shop has been making kogatana blades for decades. They have recently branched out into the world of kitchen knives with a line of really well-made Blue #2 knives with stainless cladding for easy care.

The santoku featured here is a fairly standard blade in terms of dimensions. With 166mm in length and a blade height of 46mm, it is squarely in the middle of popular santoku sizes. These are versatile blades that find favor in many homes and professional environments. Their shorter length makes them easy to handle and require less board cutting space. It is quite light in weight and nicely thin at the spine. It thins out at the end for enhanced intricate cutting abilities. Like most santoku knives, it has a well-shaped belly that makes rocking-style cuts a breeze. The double symmetrical bevel is practical for left and right-handed users.

The blade is made from Blue #2 as the core with a soft stainless steel cladding. This jigane is treated to a really good looking nashiji style finish which aids with food release while adding a nice look. This is further enhanced by the addition of some deeply chiseled kanji script. The blade is complemented by a nice traditional octagonal handle made from oak with an attractive burnt finish.

    Couldn't love this knife any more! Beautifully crafted, a precision piece that simply feels like an extension of ones own hand. The weight is balanced, the blade is remarkable, I use this knife for all of my work that isn't large butchery. Excellent.
