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 their unique shape and smaller easy-to-handle size.
About Seki Kanetsugu Heptagon - Seki Kanetsugu is a knife maker in Seki, whose ancestor was a famous swordsmith Kanetsugu (1336-1392). The company itself was founded in 1918 and celebrated its 100-year anniversary in 2018. Although this is considered to be a machine-forged knife, it is perhaps at the highest level. The blade is expertly crafted from VG2 steel, a tougher cousin of VG10. While it won't hold an edge quite as long, the convex-ground edge ensures it cuts like a razor while maintaining its tough characteristic. The stunning heptagon-shaped handle is made with pakka wood for its strength, and feels excellent in the hand.
