The Sanshu Santoku Knife is distinguished by hand-hammered blades and walnut- PakkaWood handles that evoke the artistry of traditional hand-forged knives.
Hand-crafted in Japan, the blades are thin and lightweight. This santoku knife is indispensable for chopping and slicing fresh vegetables and small cuts of meat, combining the benefits of a chef’s knife and cleaver in one.
- Blade features a core of extremely hard VG-MAX "super steel" clad on each side with 34 microthin layers of stainless steel.
- The striking hand-hammered finish (tsuchime in Japanese) reduces drag when cutting and helps to quickly release food from the blade.
- Walnut-finish PakkaWood handles have a two-position design, providing a trigger grip for pull cuts and the perfect balance point for a pinch grip.
- Stainless-steel end caps embossed with the Shun logo add stability, strength and wide weight distribution from end to end.
