Enhance your cooking with a Shironiko Japanese Santoku knife
Using traditional Japanese steel, White Steel #2 (Shironiko) is a traditional Japanese steel forged together with a softer iron. These hand-forged blades show true craftsmanship. The blade is just simple beauty and a gorgeous matt finish with stunning Hamon.
This blade needs to be cared for more than stainless steel as it will rust more easily, water should be removed immediately. It is a fascinating knife that can be used widely from home to professional. Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damage.
Santoku Japanese chef knives are designed to be thin knives that slice, cut & chop easily through meat or vegetables to maintain the integrity of each component and freshness.
Japanese Santoku knives are typically shorter and lighter than chef knives, with a thinner blade that tapers to a point. This makes them ideal for slicing and dicing vegetables and delicate tasks like mincing garlic or ginger.
Chef knives, on the other hand, are usually longer and heavier, with thicker blades and curved edges. This design makes them better suited for tasks such as chopping meat or crushing garlic cloves.
Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged. No dishwasher please.
