The Yonaguni Tsuchime Santoku is an immediate eye-catcher. A super sharp blade, stainless, well balanced and simply beautiful. The hammer blow look (Tsuchime) does not only make this knife professional but also reduces sticking to food so you can work faster with less effort. The handle is finished to a high standard and ensures a unique appearance
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 Originally made for the preparation of Japanese dishes, it has long since found its way into international kitchens.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 handles, which are well balanced to ensure long, comfortable and fatigue-free working.
But the blades are also a real eye-catcher. They consist of a VG10 Core, covered by a 67-layer high quality Japanese Damascus steel. A vacuum heat process is used to harden the blade, which results in a hardness of 60 ± 2 HRC. In the end, each knife gets a hand sharpening finish.
This ensures a long-lasting sharpness, which takes your cooking to a new level and increases your pleasure.
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.
