Takeshi Saji Coloured Damascus VG10 Santoku

Takeshi Saji

Regular price £270.00 Sale

One of the most well known and revered bladesmiths in Japan, Takeshi Saji captivates with the beauty and skill that goes on to making every single one of his knives. Combining traditional forging techniques with new and innovative designs, Saji crafts beautiful, functional works of art

VG10 steel offers a sweet spot of high performance and easy maintenance. As a pretty hard stainless steel it can get very sharp, retain that sharp well, and is very easy to maintain. 

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. 

Specifications

Knife Type: Santoku
Steel Type: VG10
Blade Type: Double edged blade
Blade Length: 170mm

IMPORTANT NOTE:

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.
