Santoku handmade by Hokiyama Hamono, in Kochi Prefecture in Japan, known for the quality of handmade blades, which he has been making for over 800 years.
The blade is made of Silver 3 steel, also called Ginsan Steel or Ginsanko and has a hardness of about 63 HRC. The main feature of this steel is that it resists rust well and perfectly retains its sharpness. The top of the blade has a Nashiji finish, which literally means "pear peel" in Japanese, which gives the blade a rough, unfinished, rustic look. In the lower part of the blade there is a very well highlighted dividing line between the different layers of steel that make up the knife. This type of forging is called San-mai, with the softer outer layers protecting the inner hard core from external factors.
The octagonal shaped handle is traditional Japanese with a modern touch given by the red / orange color, called Kyoto Sunset, reminiscent of the setting sun over Kyoto. It is made of treated maple wood, during its processing a colored pigment is added which is absorbed by the wood fibers, creating interesting and unique patterns. Each handle is therefore unique.
Santoku is a very versatile knife, suitable for cutting meat, fish and vegetables.
