The most versatile and one of the most popular knives that a cook can have today is a Japanese all purpose chefs knife known as a Santoku knife. Preparing delicious meals starts with taking wholesome ingredients and using the best tools such as a high quality chefs knife to make every meal into something special. From dicing, slicing and chopping fresh produce from a farmers market to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven, even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.
Forged and hammered with 46 layers of Damascus steel with a VG-10 Core, the hammered texture of the blade eliminates friction and keeps food from sticking to the blade. Our VG-10 Hammered Damascus Santoku Chef Knife is forged with a curved blade that smoothly rocks back and forth with an extended tip for quick chopping.
VG-10 is a Japanese stainless steel that is often utilized in high end Japanese cutlery. It has a hardness, or a HRC level (60), that exceeds that of most other stainless steel cutlery on the market. Its exceptional hardness means that the cutting edge can be constructed thinner, and therefore sharper, allowing the blade to seamlessly cut through almost any ingredient placed in front of it.
