Wa Santoku Knife
A Wa-Santoku knife is typically used in households around Japan. Unlike the standard Santoku knife, the Wa-Santoku has a traditional Japanese handle which shifts the balance point slightly,allowing more nimble cutting.
Coreless steel is a steel that achieves long cutting by layering VG2 steel and VG10 steel. Because the layers are made of different types of blade steels, the subtle difference in hardness during wear becomes a fine saw blade and a new edge.Because the blade and pattern are made of only very hard steel, it is very difficult to make the knife thin enough to be sharp and straighten.The perfection of this knife is made possible by the craftsmanship of the craftsmen who have been making the extremely hard all-steel blade one by one by removing the distortion by hand. This is the only way to achieve this level of perfection.The pattern will disappear by grinding stone or polishing during use.If you want to keep the pattern, please sharpen the cutting edge only.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
Traditionally "Damascus" Steel refers to ancient Wootz Steel from the Middle East. Known for its exceptional beauty and strength.Modern Damascus Steel is usually made from 2 grades of Steel layered to create a unique pattern. Usually one Steel is harder than the other, thus after polishing the Steels will contrast with eachother.These types of knives continue to increase in popularity due to their beauty.

A knife store that has supported the history of knives and food culture in Japan.
It has been 600 years since the birth of swordmaking in the Sakai region of Japan. Sakai Ichimonji Mitsuhide's and it's craftsmen continue to build on that legacy by producing the finest blades in Japan.
. This is where the culture of completing a dish of sashimi by "just cutting" and the culture of expressing sharpness as "taste" was born.
For 70 years, we have been connecting the spirit of Sakai's craftsmen with the passion of chefs in Osaka's kitchen equipment shopping district, known as the kitchen of Japan.
We are very happy that our knives can be used by people all over the world.
