Santoku means "the 3 virtues" (slicing, dicing, mincing) and stands for this knife's high versatility. It is the perfect multi-purpose knife. 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.
This series of knives come from Aoki Hamano Co. Ltd workshop in the city of Sakai, in Osaka, Japan, where they have over 600 years of blacksmith expertise, and still use the same technique.
The city of Seki (Sakai), Japan, is known for being the Japanese capital of swords and cutlery for over 600 years. The city contains the accumulated knowledge of generations of blacksmiths who perfected the art and science of samurai swords. Today, the master craftsmen (some octogenarians) still apply and pass on their expertise even though the warlords have now long been replaced by culinary chefs as main customers. Sakai Takayuki Aoki Hamono Seisakusho is one of the most famous and renowned manufacturers of Seki, which hires several generations of blacksmiths and apprentices. The company offers a large variety of kitchen knives, for both professional chefs and home cook.
