"High-performance" meets "Price-performance".

Santoku is a versatile kitchen knife that will shine through all kinds of chopping and cutting on the kitchen board. Meat lovers will only miss a little bit of length with larger pieces of meat. Did you know that the word santoku means "knife of three virtues" in Japanese? The word san is number three, meaning that it can be used to prepare vegetables, fish and meat.

SRS13 is a high-tech powder steel developed by Nachi-Fujikoshi, one of the most advanced steel producers in Japan. The steel is heat treated to approx. 64 HRC. It's also less likely to chip than some other powder steels and it's also completely stainless (no patina!).

The blade is minimalistically polished in a Japanese »hair–line« design, attached to a simple yet resilient traditional Japanese Wa oak handle. A very thin blade followed by an even thinner concave grind will push this one in a lightweight mid-size Japanese multi-purpose category.

Extreme sharpness will make this one a true kitchen slayer where no ingredients will stand a chance. High performance steel, clean Japanese design, low maintenance and a price you don't have to break the bank to buy one makes this nakiri a real bargain.

About Tsunehisa:

Tsunehisa knives are a brand that combines a variety of high-quality knives from various knife centers of Japan such as Tosa, Seki, and Sakai. Their philosophy is that each region has its own steel and different manufacturing processes.
