Santoku knives have gained popularity in recent years as the alternative to classic Western style chef's knives, and with the Kikuichi Tsuchime Santoku knife, it's easy to understand why. This forged, 16-layer damascus-style knife features superior Japanese VG-10 steel construction and a traditional profile. The blade is ground thin, hand sharpened, hand hammered and polished to a spectacularly sharp, and extremely hard edge. The Santoku is a versatile knife, but it's forte is making straight, clean, precise cuts. It is one of the best all-purpose/vegetable designs you could hope to use. Choose from 5 or 7" sizes. The Kikuichi Tsuchime Damascus line is stain-resistant for fairly low maintenance and carries the manufacturer's lifetime warranty. Made in Japan.

  • Forged, stain-resistant Damascus construction
  • VG-10 steel cutting core
