The santoku, meaning ‘three virtues’, also called "bunka bocho", is a multi-purpose knife.

Prioritized for vegetables and fish. These are generally flatter than gyuto and have a less pointy tip. Because they are flatter, the wrist is in a more natural position and the shoulder does not need to be raised as high. These knives do not require as much room to cut, however, these knives are not used when doing Western cutting techniques that may require more room such as a gyuto knife would. These are the most popular knives in most Japanese homes. General size is 165 to 180 mm.

The craftsmen of this knife are heavily experienced, and are very particular to the quality of a knife’s blade. The slightly curbed design of the handle and its perfect ‘fit’ feeling will make you feel excited to use this knife.
Because this blade is made entirely of VG-10, this knife can be specially processed to be either right or left-handed.
Material: V Gold 10
Finish: Regular
Handle: Red Pakkawood
Blade Type: Double edged
