This interesting and keenly priced santoku is made by one of the top smiths from Miki City, Shikegi Tanaka. He constructs these blades out of VG-10 stainless steel. The hammer forged cladding is a soft stainless alloy which helps to support the inner core while adding some shock resistance to the very hard steel. This combination of stainless steels makes daily maintenance a breeze while the nashiji (pear skin) finish is very attractive and easy to maintain.

The santoku is a great all-around kitchen knife. It possesses a deft feel and together with the tall blade endows the knife with a great deal of versatility. Santoku actually translates to three virtues and the acts of slicing, chopping, and dicing are tackled with ease by this interesting design. Many western chefs and home cooks now look to the santoku as their go-to blade for most general cutting tasks.

The black pakka wood handle is a bullet proof design that is comfortable to hold and control. It is a simple bolsterless design that allows us to offer this great blade at a really affordable price. The Tanaka VG-10 Nashiji Santoku would make a perfect starter knife for a culinary arts student or any home chef looking to enter into the world of Japanese kitchen cutlery.
