Made in Japan by a 4th generation workshop established in Tosa completely by hand forged from Aogami Blue #2 Steel. The Kaizen Carbon Steel series is known to not only take a very sharp edge, but also to provide the user with an optimal cutting experience while keeping in mind the edge geometry and balance which both play a large role in the performance of a knife. To compliment this beautiful piece of art, the Kakushin Kanji can be found engraved on the side of the blade to demonstrate our long lasting relationship (革新).
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.
