Description: A santoku is a general purpose chef's knife of Japan that many cooks today have added to their kitchen. A knife of many talents, a santoku easily handles all the basic kitchen cutting tasks. In fact, some people even prefer it to a western chef’s knife. Slightly shorter than the standard chef's knife, the Ohishi Ginsan Santoku is light, agile, and very easy to maneuver. The curved belly enables rocking cuts, making this versatile knife a kitchen favorite.
Ohishi Ginsan chef's knives feature a high performance blade. The use of Ginsan steel brings an essential innovation to blacksmithing of knives by combining the qualities of high end steels with the rust resistance of stainless steels. Ginsan is sharp like shirogami, yet easy to maintain. The Ginsan stain resistant core is surrounded by softer low carbon stainless steel. This is a great choice for a home chef who wants high performance, easier care, or a professional chef that works in a high volume kitchen. It is hardened to Hrc 61 for superior edge retention. This gives the blade an exceedingly tough, long lasting and chip resist edge that is relatively easy to sharpen. A convex grind (hamiguri-ba) and forge finished flats (nashiji) assist food to release from the side of the knife. The ambidextrous blade features a 50/50 grind.
A stainless steel bolster seals the front of the handle. The triple riveted tang runs the full length of the handle for strength and longevity. The nicely rounded, comfortable handle is made from resin impregnated hardwood. This 'pakka wood' combines the best attributes of natural wood and resin -- and easily meets the rigorous demands of a home or commercial kitchen.
