A renowned Japanese master of knife craftsmanship, Takeshi Saji, known for his exceptional skills, has meticulously crafted a small and exclusive batch of Black Nickel Damascus Santoku knives. With an impressive career spanning over three decades, Saji hails from Takefu City, Fukui Prefecture, Japan. Presently in his 70s, he brings unparalleled expertise to his creations. Enhanced by a stabilized wood handle, this knife not only boasts a contemporary and stunning appearance, but also provides a substantial and weighty grip when held.
Santoku knives are the ‘go-to’ knives for many chef's as they are known as a general-purpose kitchen knife. Santoku translates to 'three uses' or 'three virtues' and are ideal for slicing, chopping, and dicing as they feature a straight edge with a narrow foot blade. They are highly appreciated by users doing a lot of precision work thanks to the light, narrow blade, which can make extra thin cuts. While they are greatly suited for all, because of their smaller size, they tend to heavily please the chefs with smaller hands.
