Whenever you are creating beauty around you, you are restoring your own soul.Alice Walker


To celebrate the popularity of our classic Okinawa Signature Santoku, we have decided to create a new and improved handle design.

The handle is not only beautiful and unique but also waterproof, anti-bacterial, heat resistant and features an ergonomic non-slip octagonal design. It is manufactured in a complex process using stable wood to guarantee the aforementioned qualities. As the handle is handmade and consists of natural materials, each handle looks different and is completely unique.

But also the blades are a real eye-catcher. They are highly polished and consist of a 10Cr15CoMoV (VG10) core covered with a total of 67 layers of Damascus steel to reach a hardness of 59 HRC. Finally, the blade is sharpened by hand to achieve maximum sharpness. This ensures rust and corrosion resistance and a long-lasting sharpness that takes your cooking to a new level and increases your enjoyment.

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 Originally made for the preparation of Japanese dishes, it has long since found its way into international kitchens.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.  

This collection is named after Japanese islands and each knife is as beautiful as the islands themselves. Characteristic of the WASABI Island Special Collection are the colorful and beautiful handles, which are well balanced to ensure long, comfortable and fatigue-free working.

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.

It was a present for my boyfriend (passionate cook since 9 years old) and he was so happy with the look and sharpness of this knife. It is light and easy to work with. Currently his favorite knife.

I recommend this product

The knife is really sharp and I also like the handle. But the blade looks slightly different than the photos, the damascus pattern is subtle. It is polished and has a mirror finish like the Shun Premier series. Personally not my taste but a great knife in the kitchen which performs really well.
