Masakage Kumo Santoku 165mm

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 Masakage Kumo - Sexy or what? Dubbed Kumo (cloud), these dreamy looking blades could be compared to watching the clouds on the coolest of days. The blades are hand-forged with VG-10 stainless steel wrapped with alternating damascus layers of stainless steel and nickel, teamed up with an octagon cherry wood and pakka handle. They have a nice light feel and forward balance. Heavenly!

VG-10 is a steel that brings sharpness, toughness and stain resistance together in the best combination possible. That and it’s stainless so you never see your food discolour or pick up a rusty knife.
