Do not dissect a rainbow. In other words, do not destroy a beautiful phenomenon by overanalyzing it.Denise LaFrance
The Master Iriomote is a handmade masterpiece. In a vacuum heat treatment 73 layers of high quality Damascus are wrapped around a stable VG10 core. 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 mainly made of high quality white shadow wood. It furthermore comes with a premium hand-stitched vegetable tanning knife sheath.
This model 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 Originally made for the preparation of Japanese dishes, it has long since found its way into international kitchens.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.
Its characteristic feature, apart from the enormous sharpness of a Santoku knife, is its special shape: Unlike European models, the blade is wider than the handle, so that your fingers have more room when cutting. Furthermore, a Santoku knife is often lighter than its comparably large European relatives.
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.

I am a knife collector and have already many classic knives at home, all from renowned brands. And I have also spent a lot of money on these over the years. Since I have never seen knives like the ones offered here before, I just had to order a few and try them out. I am very impressed! Beautiful and sharp, not a bit worse than my other knives. But much more exciting and beautiful. Currently the only knives I use. Thanks !
This knife looks absolutely amazing, I love it! And it is brutally sharp. The most stunning knife I own.
Looks even better than the photos. Really sharp. Worth it.
