The Aratogi Kiritsuke is a unique handmade beauty. A Santoku is ideally suited for the preparation of wok dishes and wafer-thin sushi. It also cuts and chops meat, fish, vegetables and herbs with ease. This knife is full of history and generations of experience from professional blacksmiths who created a new standard of craftsmanship.
For the blade 440C steel is used, which was forged by hand from very experienced professionals. Through the process a hardness of 60 ± 2 HRC is reached. This guarantees extreme long-lasting sharpness.
The handle is crafted from Ebony in a complex process and adapts ergonomically to every hand. In Addition, the knife is perfectly balanced and enables fatigue free working. Make sure you clean and dry the knife immediately after usage to ensure it lasting for a lifetime!
