Haruyuki Shiso Santoku 165mm

Japanese blades have long been treasured for their beauty and performance. While modern knife-making techniques often involve less hands-on work, the results of modern technology are more consistent and reliable. The Haruyuki Shiso has the best of both worlds; it combines classic style and elegance with the consistency and perfection of modern factory-forging. The blades are forged by machine, and are ground, sharpened, handles and inspected by master craftsmen. 

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.
