The santoku knife blends attributes of a gyuto and western chef knife with a unique blade geometry that utilizes a sheep's foot tip. A sheep's foot tip comes from drawing the spine of the knife down to the front and tip, so there is little clearance above the horizontal cutting plane when the blade is resting naturally from heel to forward cutting edge. This results in a knife that favors less rocking motion. "Santoku" translates to Three Virtues. This is a perfect word to describe the three cutting tasks which the knife performs well: slicing, dicing, and mincing.

The Takayuki VG-10 Hammered Damascus Wa Santoku is made from the popular stainless steel known as VG-10. The name stands for V Gold 10, or sometimes V-Kin-10 (kin means "gold" in Japanese). VG-10 is probably the most popular stainless alloy used in the making of Japanese kitchen knives. The great looking tsuchime, or hammered, finish blends with the ripples of the multi-layer damascus cladding to create a knife with wonderful visual appeal.

The blade is given center stage with the inclusion of a simple traditional octagonal handle made from maple and red pakka wood. The match is perfect.
