Hammered Tsuchime 440c Steel Santoku 180mm - KOTAI
Santoku means "3 virtues" in Japanese, as it can be used to cut meat, fish and vegetables at the same time. Japanese precision, western sturdiness. The best of both worlds. * 100% handmade * Ultra-sharp 440C Japanese steel * Full tang * Pakkawood handle * Perfectly balanced * Stainless steel * Pine wood saya included with each knife * Lifetime warranty * HRC hardness: 59-60 * Weight: 189g Beyond the aesthetic appeal, the hammering of the "Tsuchime" blade creates small pockets of air between the blade and the food slices. This ancestral Japanese method prevents the food from sticking to the blade for a pleasant and fast cutting. The thinness of the Santoku blade will allow you to slice and mince without crushing even the most delicate ingredients, so that they retain their full flavor. In addition, the honeycombed blade reduces friction between the knife and the food being cut so that it does not stick to the blade. The KOTAI Santoku is forged with 440C steel, a premium steel that combines high carbon content for hardness and edge retention with the optimal amount of chromium to prevent oxidation. The full hidden tang - a single piece of steel from the tip of the blade to the end of the handle - gives the Santoku an ideal balance and outstanding durability.
