A note about measurements: Handmade Japanese knives can vary in their dimensions, so these measurements are only an example.
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.
Tojiro Atelier - These beautiful knives represent the sexier side of practicality. The durable stainless steel core is layered with softer Damascus steel
to protect the cutting edge. Hand forged by Tomoo Matsumura-san in Tsubame city, the Tojiro Atelier series feels sharper than most stainless knives and is the perfect choice for a chef that desires a little more style. Tough, yet attractive, what more could you ask for in a knife?
VG-10 is a steel designed to make knives; it brings sharpness, toughness and stain resistance together in the best combination possible. The result being a mind-blowingly sharp edge that stays sharp a crazy long time. Compared to other stainless steel, it is a dream to sharpen. You’ll never see your food discolour or have to pick up a rusty knife.
