Description: Shigefusa's knives are among the most desired knives found anywhere, as attested to by his long waiting list. A spectacular feel in the hand, this Japanese chef's knife will soon become among the only knives that you use in the kitchen. The santoku is the traditional Japanese chefs knife. This comfortable design is a fantastic multipurpose chopper. The Santoku style has quickly become the new favorite for chefs in the West. Perfect balance and a razor sharp edge.
By creating an ultra hard core (63-64 Rc), and forge-welding softer Damascus to the sides, Shigefusa creates a knife that will maintain its edge much longer than a European-made knife. The ho wood, which is traditional for Japanese chef knives, is excellent for use in the kitchen because it holds up well to the heavy demands of both home and commercial kitchens. This is a chef's dream.
