Santoku means "the 3 virtues" (slicing, dicing, mincing) and stands for this knife's high versatility. It is the perfect multi-purpose knife for vegetables, meat and fish. This great universal tool isn't as intimidating as a large chef knife and therefore perfectly suited to initiate you to the great world of Japanese knives.
The blade's heart is made of R2 powered steel, which has an extremely fine structure, and clad by multilayered damascus.
The handle is a real piece of art : it is made of massive, exotic ironwood – the most dense and heavy wood existing. The wood's density makes the handle resistant to humidity and guarantees its longevity. This masterpiece is surely one of our most beautiful knives!
The Saji Office Ironwood knives are made by Takeshi Saji, a renowned Japanese master blacksmith.
All knives from Masakage are handmade by master blacksmiths of Takefu's village and hand sharpened by one of Japan's best knife sharpeners, Takayuki Shibata san. When these knives come out of their box, they have an amazing sharpness and will stay sharp for an extremely long time due to Shibata san's masterful technique. Alambika is extremely happy to import and retail Japanese knives (from Takefu village) in Canada. The whole kitchen knife collection can be seen and handled in our Montreal store.
