Made in Japan from hammered Aogami Super steel known to be one of the hardest Japanese made steel by Hitachi Metals. In other words, it is one of the sharpest with the longest lasting edge. With the carbon steel core covered with SUS 405 Stainless Steel, most of the blade has resistance to oxidation.

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.

While often similar in shape when compared to Western chef knives, Japanese Gyuto’s have a reputation for being lighter and thinner.
