Makoto Tadokoro is a young blacksmith from Tosa Japan and was trained by Morihiro san from Sakai who is considered one of the best blade sharpeners in Japan. The santoku is a Japanese knife style that is well established in the western marketplace. Santoku knives are prized for their handy, user-friendly size chef knife-like versatility. The sheep’s foot blade profile of a santoku lends it to chopping and push cutting techniques, as opposed to rocking. While you can use a rocking technique, it is just not optimal. Being only 170mm or about 6.75 inches long, this size will appeal to those who feel that a full-size gyuto is just too unwieldy or cumbersome.

Ginsan Stainless Steel was created by Hitachi Metals and it is primarily used to make knives that function in ways that are similar to high-carbon steel. But the big plus is the lack of maintenance required over its carbon siblings. The steel composition is very pure compared to most alloys, as it is comprised of just iron, carbon, and chromium. The pure nature of the steel gives it a great ability to take a fine edge and sharpen with ease.

The overall fit and finish of these knives is very good. We really appreciate the added hand-chiseled kanji characters along with the good-looking and feeling octagonal, rosewood handle. The total package is classic and classy, and we think you will enjoy this versatile cutter in your kitchen.
