Yoshihiro High Speed Steel Santoku 7'' (180mm) Multipurpose Chefs Knife (Black Pakkawood Handle)Product Code: THSSA180
Our Yoshihiro High Speed Steel series beautifully brings together incredible sharpness, long lasting edge retention, stain resistance, and an ease of sharpening that outclasses many other knives currently on the market. The outstanding performance of the knife is the result of combing state of the art metallurgy with the bountiful knowledge and skill of the master craftsmen.
High Speed Steel is currently considered to be the most advanced stainless steel on the market for high end kitchen knives. A particular significance is the high amount of C(1.3%), W (1.25%) in the steel alloy which give it its high wear resistance and durability. It makes it perfect for use in its original purpose of industrial machinery, but also excellent in high end kitchen knives which require long lasting edge retention.
It is not easy to forge kitchen knives with High Speed Steel and there are not many knife manufacturers that make the attempt. However, the end results are overwhelmingly positive if done successfully. A particular importance is during heat treatment when the steel reaches in excess of 1000 degrees Celsius.
