To celebrate the popularity of our classic Okinawa Signature Santoku, we have decided to create a 2020 summer edition, which is limited to 150 pieces. The highlight of this stunning knife is the beautiful handle, which not only features an ergonomic non-slip hexagonal prism design, but is also waterproof, anti-bacterial and heat resistant.
It is manufactured in a complex process using stable wood and blue resin to guarantee the aforementioned qualities. As the handle is handmade and consists of natural materials, each handle looks slightly different and is completely unique.
But also the blades are a real eye-catcher. They are highly polished and consist of a VG10 core covered with a total of 67 layers of Damascus steel. 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 Originally made for the preparation of Japanese dishes, it has long since found its way into international kitchens.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.

For optimal, long lasting sharpness we recommend you storing your knives using a knife block and sharpening your knives regularly using a whetstone or sharpening steel. The equipment can be found in our shop under Knife Sharpening Tools and Accessories. A detailed sharpening Instruction can be found here.
I am living in California near the beach and when I saw this knife I knew I had to order one! It looks stunning and reminds me of the beach. Looks even better in real life. The knife is really sharp, light and very comfortable to use. Worth every penny, I can definetly recommend it!
I ordered this knife directly after I saw that it is new and limited (not my first purchase from Wasabi). Once again I was not disappointed! Continue the good work and let me know when new knives are available :D
