The signature sheepsfoot profile and large radius edge curvature come as you would expect on the Tanaka Sekiso damascus 165mm santoku. This knife is a great all around chef knife, and is especially good for those intimidated by larger blades, or those who just donít have the kind of board space needed for a larger knife. This santoku has a core blade steel of Aogami #2 or blue paper #2, finished with a ductile iron cladding, making its blade fully reactive. The heat treatment applied brings the steel to a Rockwell Hardness of right around 60, which is hard enough to take and hold a sharp edge, but not so hard that the steel becomes overly brittle.

The ho wood handle is capped with a buffalo horn ferrule, and the kanji on the blade are hand chiseled with a very unique style. Thin and lightweight, this santoku is a good contender for a starring role in your dinner prep lineup.

  • Steel: Blue #2, Damascus cladding
  • Edge Length: 168mm
  • Blade Height: 48mm
  • Weight: 3.7oz
  • Spine Thickness at heel: 2.7mm

    5  Soooo Happy!, March 28, 2016

    I started my venture just recently into Japanese knives with some Tojiros. A great starting point, I was amazed at how sharp they were OOTB and how smooth they cut. Then I bought the Tanaka Samtoku, OMG, it was like comparing the Tojiros to a Cuisinart kitchen set. So sharp out of the box, so smooth cutting product, very impressed again. Now, what's next ? :-)

    Just received this knife and it is very sharp out of the wooden box it came in. I think this knife is a great bargain and a pleasure to use. I give it 5 stars

    Attractive knife nicely presented in a wooden case. 4 out of 5 for sharpness out of the box. While it will slice through paper or anything else I can strop this knife and make it a razor. Great price for a great product.
