Haruyuki Shiso 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 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.
