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 Shizu Yuri - Shizu Hamono is a relatively “new” knife maker, established in 1959 in Seki by Masami Horibe, he grew in Seki city, the city of blacksmiths, and naturally became a craftsman. Their Yuri line sports a clean, minimalist aesthetic that we love. They fit right into a modern kitchen, and the line is perfect for cooks of any skill level that want a reliable knife that doesn't have to be babied. The AUS8 steel takes a great edge but doesn't chip easily, and the pakkawood handle is elegant and rugged. They even come in a gorgeous Paulownia wood box, making them perfect for gifts!
