Best To Use

Tojiro Santoku Damascus is a great choice if you are looking for a multi-purpose knife for your kitchen. It features a slightly wider blade than the most common Santoku-shaped knives, therefore it will excel at cutting vegetables, but will also perform well with cutting smaller to medium sized pieces of meat and fish. The excellent VG-10 steel with the hardness of 61 HRC is clad into 62 layers of softer stainless steel with the Damascus pattern, making every knife a unique looking piece.
The blade extends into a traditional Japanese round Wa handle made of durable oak wood with a buffalo horn ferrule. The handle has an emphasized angle for a better grip, which makes it more suitable for right-handed users.
