Description: The Kumagoro Hachi 7 inch Santoku is an exceptional all-purpose chef's knife. From meats, to fish, and vegetables, the santoku chef's knife is the perfect knife to grab. 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. It is sure to become your go-to knife for a wide range of dicing, chopping, and slicing tasks.
Kumagoro Hachi knives are made by craftsmen in Sanjo, Japan using the time-tested traditional forging techniques of Japanese swordsmiths. The central core is high performing Takefu VG10 stainless steel. This steel, high in molybdenum, vanadium and cobalt, holds an incredible edge. Surrounding this hagane (inner core) are eight layers of soft, supportive steel called suminagashi or damascus steel. Each damascus pattern is the result of its unique forging process. The blade comes razor sharp and fully honed.
The handle is made from durable pakkawood. The resin impregnated wood is riveted to the tang and holds up beautifully in either a home or profession kitchen.
Kumagoro Hachi knives provide a high performance kitchen knife with an incredible price.
