Takayuki AS Santoku 165mm.
This is a new line of knives we have started carrying from the industry giants Sakai Takayuki. Sakai Takayuki was established in 1946, and has since become one of the biggest manufacturers of Japanese knives in the world. Their products come from the origins of sword making in Sakai, Japan, the history of which stretches back nearly 800 years.
The AS Santoku is a fun and functional kitchen weapon capable of tackling almost every ingredient. Santoku knives are general purpose chef knives in Japan and they do a wide variety of tasks. This intriguing and somewhat cool looking knife style has a nice flat spot which is ideal for push cutting. It is a perfect tool for processing smaller items and performing intricate cuts.
The blade is constructed from Aogami Super
high carbon steel which has been hammer forged with an outer layer of stainless steel. The cladding is given a hammer finish and the carbon forging scale has been kept to enhance the look and aid with food release. The great looking blade is coupled to a Maple octagonal handle.
