Yoshihiro Tsuchime Finish VG10 17-layer Damascus Steel Santoku


This product is unavailable

Crafted by Goh Umanosuke Yoshihiro in Sakai City, Osaka, Japan, the knife combines Sakai's 600 years of forging tradition with the ancient art of Damascus folding. It features a folded Damascus stainless steel, with a corrosion-resistant VG10 core.

The blade is manually hammered to create a beautiful Tsuchime pattern, which aids in food release during cutting. The blade edge is polished with a bright finish, showcasing the exquisite Damascus folding pattern.

As times have changed, the Gyuto has evolved into the Santoku, characterized by its blade shape resembling a scythe. With a wide range of applications, it is suitable for cutting meat, fish, and vegetables.

Due to its less pointed blade design, the tip is less prone to breakage, enhancing a sense of safety, and it quickly gained popularity in households.

The Santoku typically has a slightly wider blade compared to a Gyuto of the same size, providing more space for your fingers during use and offering ample support for the other hand when slicing. The standard size for a Santoku is 18cm, but occasionally, smaller mini Santoku knives are also available.

Handle: Mahogany wood Western-style handle
This product comes with a Magnolia wood Saya.

How to Maintain Stainless Steel Knives

After use, simply wipe the knives dry to remove any moisture. Do not use a dishwasher to clean your knives. If you plan not to use the knives for an extended period, it's advisable to apply a thin layer of protective oil.

Ensure you use the knives correctly, as they are designed for specific functions such as slicing, chopping, or handling frozen foods. Avoid using them beyond their intended purpose, as this can lead to damage.
