Haruyuki Shiso Santoku 165mm

About the Shape - This is also a multi purpose knife, but with a slight vegetable bias. Santoku means 'Three Virtues' or 'To solve Three Problems'. The virtues or problems are slicing, dicing and mincing. Santoku is usually found in 160mm - 190mm lengths. These are more and more popular in Western kitchens due to the unique shape and smaller easy to handle size.

About Haruyuki Shiso -The Haruyuki Shiso has the best of both worlds; it combines classic style and elegance with the consistency and perfection of modern factory-forging. Aogami Super is the king of knife steel - super easy to sharpen, gets a laser beam edge, cuts like silk and is very rugged for its hardness. It’s called SUPER for a reason. They are then clad in a softer stainless steel to help lower the possibility of rusting. Just brilliant.
The handle is made from Morado, a wood used when durability is key. Flooring and cabinetry, for example.

The kurochi finish is possibly one of our favourites we’ve seen on a machine-forged knife. Whether you are a professional chef building your tool kit, or a home cook wanting an awesome knife, the Shiso will serve you well.
