The Santoku Knife: Echoing the Samurai's Katana

The Japanese brand Kai manufactures internationally recognized knives for their quality. Beyond professional knives, the brand also creates tools such as razors, scissors, and sharpening stones.

The Santoku knife is Japan's most popular knife because it offers a more user-friendly alternative to the traditional vegetable cutter. Its blade is generally a bit curved, and sometimes it features dimples to ease cutting and to help food release from the blade.

This Kai Santoku knife is part of the Shun Classic range, which combines the traditional art of forging Japanese samurai swords with modern and sophisticated manufacturing processes of today. The range demonstrates a perfect union of craftsmanship, technique, and design.

A Perfect Union of Craftsmanship and Design

With an 18 cm sharp blade made of VGMAX steel, enriched with carbon and cobalt, this professional Santoku knife has undergone a 32-layer Damascus process that blends layers of hard and soft steel, giving the blade hardness and flexibility. This guarantees excellent sharpness while maintaining flexibility for greater durability.

The blade offers a clean and precise cut and has been honed to a convex edge. It achieves a hardness of 62 HRC, allowing you to sharpen it less often.

This Santoku knife features a pakka wood handle, a noble material made of wood and resin compressed under high heat. With its "D" shape, it is perfectly designed to fit your hand. Ergonomic and easy to handle, it is suitable for long periods of use and also withstands temperature variations and water.

With refined aesthetics, it meets the demands of culinary professionals. It is also suitable for home cooks and enthusiasts looking to equip themselves with quality.
