Description: Toshihiro Wakui is one of the finest smiths in Sanjo, Japan. For several years, Wakui-san worked with Yoshikane. His skill in the forge and with heat treating is exceptional.
The santoku is the traditional Japanese chef's knife. This comfortable design is a fantastic multipurpose chopper. The Santoku style has quickly become the new favorite for chefs in the West.
Wakui handforged this knife. A central core of hard Shirogami #2 is set between thin layers of stainless steel, resulting in a keen, long lasting edge with easier maintenance. White steel is a favorite of sushi chefs for tasks requiring a very fine edge. It is a steel that tests the skill of the bladesmith in both forging and heat treating. The thin blade is distal tapered for optimal balance with a clean grind and no wedging. The spine is rounded for comfortable, effortless cuts.
The octagonal handle is comfortable for both right and left handed users. It is formed from ho wood, the traditional wood for Japanese knife handles. Ho wood holds up extremely well in the harsh environment of the kitchen. A buffalo horn ferrule completes the handle. Like other kitchen knives, this knife should not be put in a dishwasher. We recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust.
