Yoshihiro VG10 17-layer Damascus Steel Santoku Black Pakkawood Handle



Crafted by Goh Umanosuke Yoshihiro in Sakai City, Osaka, Japan, this double-beveled Santoku is made from 17 layers of folded Damascus stainless steel, with a core of corrosion-resistant VG10 steel.

It is an exceptionally versatile essential for both professional and home use.The blade undergoes a mirror-polishing treatment, showcasing not only the exquisite Damascus folded pattern but also ensuring a smoother cutting experience during use.

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: Pakkawood 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.
