      The universal and representative all-purpose knife for home use has the strengths of both the traditional nakiri and the Western butcher's knife. Santoku means "three uses" or "three virtues," derived from its flexibility in cutting meat, fish, and vegetables. Its double-bevel blade is more comprehensive than a Gyuto, making it a fine choice for right and left-handed people.

      Blue (Aogami) #2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to White Steel #2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules, which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Blue Steel #2 is very similar to White Steel #2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention.

      Black-finish is a state in which the surface that has been blackened by quenching is sharpened only with the blade, leaving the black side unintentionally on the sides ( Mine & Hira ) other than the blade.
      There is no elegance like polished finish, but it has a taste of bumps and ruggedness. It also has the advantage of less rust than polished finish.
