Shirogami, or White steel, is a carbon steel which achieves superb sharpness and excellent edge retention. As with any carbon steel it will react to moisture left on the blade, so keep it clean and dry to avoid the risk of corrosion. Do that and you will be rewarded by the increased performance over similarly priced stainless steels.

Similar to a Gyuto chef’s knife, the Santoku offers a large light blade with a taller profile and a flatter belly, making the knife excellent for a more ‘up and down’ chopping motion for meat, fish or vegetables. Blades vary from 160mm to 180mm. This is a great knife if you want an all rounder with shorter blade and a good weight to it.

Do not use the knife to chop hard materials such as bones or frozen items unless the knife is made for that specific purpose. Always ensure you keep your knife clean and dry, and sharpen it as required to prevent a dull edge.
