Santoku translate's to three virtues which refers to slicing dicing and chopping... so pretty much anything you're going to do in the kitchen. We find these knives are great for the home cook who wants that one knife they can grab and do anything with.
Coming to us from Miki Hamono in Miki city Japan. Very subtle but beautiful Nashiji pattern on these knives which also feature easy maintenance as they are clad in stainless steel, At their core VG-10. These knives are quite light and feature beautifully finished rosewood handles. Great for the chef on a budget or the first time japanese knife buyer who doesn't want to make a huge commitment.
