Okeya Blue #2 Western Santoku 160mm. This is a typical knife you would find in a local cutlery store in Japan. The knife is made with Blue #2 carbon steel and has nice textured stainless cladding on the blade with a simple but durable western handle made of walnut wood. Santokus are the best-selling blade style to Japanese home cooks. They're great for a wide variety of cutting tasks. This knife is reactive so you need to wipe it dry after you wash it. Okeya knives are made by a tiny blacksmith shop near Osaka in a town called Miki Japan just outside Kobe.
