Seki Kanetsugu have been producing quality knives since 1849 so they know a thing or two about a good knife. The ranges we offer are carefully selected to offer amazing value for money, solid performance and a traditional Japanese style.
These are made from VG2 steel. Stainless and similar to VG10. They are hard, sharp, beautiful and very well finished. Not only that but they a really cool 7 sided handle with a cool angled bottom.
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.
