Ryusen Prever Santoku 180mm

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.

About Ryusen Prever - Ryusen Hamono was founded in 1948 as a knife sharpening company. They worked with companies like Takefu Special Steel as early as the 1970s to develop high-quality knives made with stainless steel, at a time when most other knife makers were struggling to produce decent stainless steel knives. Now, they have expanded their collection of knives not only having sharpness and longevity in mind but with a sleek modern design.

The classy Prever series carries the prestige of a luxury car, combining Japanese and European design elements into one elegant package. The VG10 stainless steel core offers top-notch performance without difficult maintenance, and the 66-layer damascus cladding takes it to the next level. The Canadian walnut handle featured a European-style bolster for extra heft.
