A note about measurements: Handmade Japanese knives can vary in their dimensions, so these measurements are only an example.
About the shape - Santoku means 'Three Virtues' or 'To solve Three Problems'. The three virtues are meat, fish and vegetables, or slicing, dicing and mincing depending on your interpretation. This means that the Santoku is an all-around knife, suitable for the amateur home cook and the professional chef alike. The heigh means good clearance for big hands, while the relatively short blade can be wielded by anyone.
About Fujimoto Hammer Tone -The Hammer Tone is the rock-star of the Fujimoto line, with its striking good looks and sexy shine. This line took almost two years of collaboration and design to create, and we will be continuing to add more shapes as they come out of development.
The name "Hammer Tone" comes from the freshly forged look and the X-shaped hammer marks on the carbonized “kurouchi” surface. The octagonal walnut handle accents the blade’s look beautifully and fits perfectly into any size of hand. This handle gives the blade an overall light feeling and forward balance.
The core steel is SLD semi-stainless steel, which was originally designed by Hitachi for cutting other steels. It holds an edge as long as a carbon steel but is much easier to care for.
