      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.

      Aogami-Super (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is one of the most outstanding Japanese carbon steels. In addition to containing more Carbon, Chromium, and Tungsten than Blue Steel #1, it includes Molybdenum. It has excellent edge sharpness and edge retention but is also capable of attaining high hardness without being brittle. Consequently, many knife enthusiasts rate Aogami Super as one of the world's very best high carbon steels.

    Light and supersharp

    I am encouraged to buy these knives after watching demonstrations on YouTube, in physical stores a similar handmade knife has a value of more than twice as much as in this store, intermediaries inflate prices and that is why I also prefer to buy directly from the factory, I save a good amount of money and help artisans to make a better profit. Santoku is really light and sharp, it cuts vegetables such as butter, on the contrary it is more difficult to sharpen than other steels although it is worth it for the excellent performance
