We are pleased to be the first company to bring these fine Japanese knives to USA shores. Yoshimitsu constructs this series of kitchen knives with a core of Aogami Super steel. This hard center is then clad san-mai style with a softer iron layer (or “jigane”). The outer layer is then blackened by an oxide film while it is being hardened, which produces the rustic finish known as kurouchi. These knives are set with a 50/50 even grind.

The Yoshimitsu santoku is average in length at 180mm. It also tips the scales at around the midpoint for santokus of this size. Santoku means three virtues in Japanese and the description refers to the three main cutting tasks which the knife performs so well: slicing, dicing, and mincing. The combination of a light, mid-sized blade and a well refined edge gives this knife a speed and dexterity that will surprise you.

      Best knife I've used , September 17, 2020
    Posted By: John keller - verified customer

    This knife is my favorite in the kitchen. It's light, balanced and is perfectly shaped. It sharpens on my wet stones perfectly and holds a great edge. Thank you for making these available to the states.
