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.

Blacksmith/Maker Teruyasu Fujiwara

About Teruyasu Fujiwara: Fujiwara san is a fourth-generation blacksmith, from a lineage that spans 130 years, but he is the first to focus on kitchen knives. Preferring carbon-steel for its sharpness but sympathetic to the customers who maintain it, Fujiwara san and his father invented a method to forge-weld stainless steel over carbon steel back in the 70s. This method is used all over Japan today.
As if forge-welding by hand weren’t enough, Fujiwara also starts with 3-times more steel than other blacksmiths. Although his forging takes longer, he is able to make his knives out-perform other knives of the same steel, purely through his forging technique. Fujiwara san truly is one-of-a-kind.
