The Okinawa Pro Santoku is a handmade masterpiece. But let us start at the very beginning. The history of our Okinawa knives began with our Okinawa Signature Santoku, which has fully convinced our customers in terms of sharpness, performance and appearance.
Nevertheless, some customers asked for a hand-forged Pro version - they wanted an even more beautiful and extraordinary blade, as well as an exquisite handle. A very hard task, but we were not deterred by it. And so the development began with our experienced blacksmiths. After a lot of hard work and passion we finally succeeded in fulfilling our customers' wishes. Accordingly, we now proudly present you the Okinawa Pro Santoku.
In a vacuum heat treatment 73 layers of custom Damascus steel are wrapped around a stable 10Cr15CoMoV core. Each knife is forged and sharpened by hand. This results in an extremely sharp knife with a hardness of 60 ± 2 HRC. It ensures a long-lasting sharpness, which takes your cooking to a new level and increases your pleasure.
The ergonomic handle is hand polished and made of stable wood as well as black sandal wood. Please note that the colors of the handle can vary since natural materials are used. You can get this knife with an Italian hand-stitched vegetable leather sheath to protect your knife from scratches and to carry it around. The flower pattern is hand-carved. It is the ultimate knife that leaves no wishes unfulfilled.
The Santoku is the exotic among knives. Originally made for the preparation of Japanese dishes, it has long since found its way into international kitchens. A Santoku knife is ideally suited for the preparation of wok dishes and wafer-thin sushi. It cuts and chops meat, fish, vegetables and herbs with ease.
Knives from this collection are the ideal gift for passionate and aspiring hobby chefs, making even the most demanding friends and family members very satisfied.
