Over a thousand years of craftsmanship have inspired the final form of the Kamikoto Santoku Double-Bevel Chef’s Knife, a handmade steel blade that will stand the test of time. The Kamikoto Santoku blade is 7 inches long – a double bevel 両刃 Ryouba. This exquisite knife comes in a natural-colored ash wood box for storage and safekeeping. The Santoku handle is carefully sized to keep your hand from touching the cutting surface. You can tell the quality of Kamikoto 神箏 by the feel it gives you: substantial, yet light; slender, sharp, and fluid. Each knife is heat treated and sharpened for superior edge retention and long-lasting performance. The Kamikoto 神箏 Santoku Chef’s Knife is made for a lifetime of use and excellent handling.
Unlike the Genten series, the Ganjo series is likely to rust due to patterns formed during the forging process of the blades.
