Santoku means "the 3 virtues" (slicing, dicing, mincing) and stands for this knife's high versatility. It is the perfect multi-purpose knife for vegetables, meat and fish. This great universal tool isn't as intimidating as a large chef knife and therefore perfectly suited to initiate you to the great world of Japanese knives.
Handmade Masakage Kurosaki Megumi knives are made of VG-10 steel. The damascus cladding gives a unique hammered design and hardness to each blade and makes the edge stay sharp for quite long time. As with most Masakage knives, the heel of the blade is rounded to allow a more comfortable use of the pinch grip.
The octagonal handle is made of American Cherry wood and black water buffalo horn.
The line has been named after its young master blacksmith Yu Kurosaki, who works in Takefu Village.
Yoshihiro Cutlery started in Japan, over a hundred years ago. Since 2008, they also established themselves in California, and they now offer their knives to the rest of the world. Loyal to the traditions dating back to 700 years ago, the knives are handmade the way ancient swords were.
