This exclusive, limited edition Santoku knife is from the exclusive Shun Engetsu collection of knives. The Engetsu or "Full Moon" range was specifically crafted for the company's 20th Anniversary and features Damascus layers in an exquisite pattern featured on the highly polished blade. Beyond the stunning aesthetic, these knives are truly state of the art.
The 7 layers of Dual Core features a mixture of VG2 and VG10 steel. The design, toughness and durability of the heel and tip differ from the middle of the blade, providing different zones of performance where needed. In addition, the high density middle section produces fine micro serrations that enable precision slicing, thus reducing loss of natural juices.
A santoku is a Japanese all-purpose kitchen knife. As with a chef's knife, the santoku can be used for virtually any cutting job in the kitchen. The name means "three virtues." Depending on who you ask, the name refers either to the three types of food it works well with - fruit, protein and vegetables - or the three types of cuts at which it excels - slicing, dicing and chopping.
All Shun Engetsu knives come packaged in beautiful, high quality wooden boxes, perfect for gifting or storage.
