  • 67-layers of high-carbon stainless steel cladding provide exceptional strength, durability and stain resistance.
  • Ruthlessly sharp, scalpel-like edge is hand finished to a mirror polish within a staggering 8-12° degree angle using the traditional 3-step 'Honbazuke' method.
  • Nitrogen-cooled for enhanced hardness, flexibility and corrosion resistance
  • Featuring exquisite, Feather blade pattern, for striking, stand-out beauty.
  • Precisely tapered blade minimises surface resistance for buttery smooth cut through.
  • Bolster provides a perfectly engineered balance and gently encourages a comfortable and proper pinch grip'
  • Meticulously constructed, ultra-premium handle made with burl wood and red resin. Highly impervious to heat, cold and moisture with military-grade strength and life-long durability.
  • Ergonomic handle shape for superior hand control, agilit, and comfort.
  • Hidden tang for superb robustness and quality.

Damascus blades are made from high carbon steel with small amounts of chromium in the alloy. While high in carbon steel, the blade can show rust if not cared for. You should ensure to keep the blades clean and dry thoroughly to avoid rust or staining. Hand wash only. These knives are not suitable for cutting bone.

We recommend using a whetstone to sharpen your knives.

We have a range on our website and also have some articles on our blog, which talk you through the best way to look after and sharpen your knives, including recommended angles, etc

Knives should never go in the dishwasher. Dishwasher detergent is very abrasive, and along with the banging around that happens during a wash cycle, will take the sharp edge right off your knife. The high heat can also damage the handle or misshape them. Always wash knives by hand in the sink with dish soap and water and dry after.

The Pros love our knives too
Thousands of our knives are put through their paces daily by some of the best chefs in the best restaurants worldwide.

Best Christmas gift

This knife was bought as a gift for my partner for Christmas who is very much into his cooking setup. Initially I was sent the wrong item, to which the Santoku team was very quick to rectifying and I revived the original order before Christmas. My partner loves the knife, it is beautifully created and we couldn’t be happier. I will be purchasing more of the set because of the amazing quality and the fantastic customer service I received from them
