Santoku Japanese kitchen knife Miyabi 5000FCD RAW 18cm 34684-181-0
MIYABI 5000 FCD Santoku, 18cm blade length. This Japanese santoku has a hard fine carbide steel core for very good cutting edge retention and sharpness. Santoku translates as "Three Virtues", these being meat, fish and vegetables. The flat cutting edge lends itself to a chopping motion rather than the rocking cutting movement of European chef's knives. The blade core is surrounded by 48 outer layers of steel which make up the unique Damascus-design pattern on the blade. The cutting edge is Honbazuke-honed and symmetrical (not single bevel), so can be used by those both right and left-handed. There is no finger guard so the whole length of the cutting edge can be used. The handle and half-bolster join seamlessly for comfortable use. The smooth surface helps to prevent the formation of calluses on the thumb and forefinger. Hand wash only for best care, and maintain and sharpen using a whetstone. We’d recommend using a wooden chopping board rather than glass, ceramic or stone boards as these will dull the cutting edge. - FC61 fine carbide steel blade core; - 48 layers of steel surrounding the core create the Damascus-design; - FRIODUR ice-hardened for extreme hardness; - Rockwell hardness of approximately 61; - Symmetrical cutting edge; - Pakka wood handle; - Steel mosaic pin and handle end cap; - Made in Japan.

 Santoku – a universal kitchen knife with a double-sided sharpening, is perhaps the most popular model of Japanese knives. "Santoku" literally translates as "three good things" or "three uses". It means that it is good to cut, chop and crumble with such a knife. There is also a version that means that the knife can be used for vegetables, meat and fish.

    Santoku, unlike the usual European chef's knife, has a different blade shape – its tip is lowered, and the cutting edge has a more straight shape. So, this kitchen knife is also suitable for chopping. The blade length of the santoku is usually 16-18 cm. Sometimes there are models with a short blade - only 14 cm. Pay attention that knives with a shorter blade, the handle is also shorter than a standard-sized santoku. Therefore, knives with a shortened blade fit better in a woman's hand, and for men the handle may be too short and uncomfortable. Often there are air pockets on the santoku blade, which prevent sticking of products. However, this does not work with all vegetables.

    Like other Japanese kitchen knives, santoku is made of both stainless and carbon steel. If you don't have time to take special care of the knife, we recommend choosing a stainless steel santoku. If you are ready to immediately wipe the knife dry after washing and periodically care it with oil, feel free to choose a carbon steel santoku. It can be sharpened to razor sharpness and it will keep sharpening for a long time. However, currently there are high-carbon Japanese steels that are corrosion resistant, such as, for example, VG10.

    Regardless of what materials the santoku knife is made of, it cannot be washed in the dishwasher. Washing in the dishwasher damages the handle material and the blade. To protect the santoku blade and other Japanese knives from damage during storage or carrying, you can use a special saja sheath. This is a wooden case that can be put on the blade and, if necessary, secured with a special pin. Saja can also be bought online in our store.

    In general, the Japanese santoku knife may well replace the classic European chef's knife in the kitchen. Or become a great addition to it. Here you can buy online santoku knives of the best Japanese brands and craftsmen: Kasumi, Tojiro, Mcusta Zanmai, Seki Kanetsugu, Miyabi, Yu Kurosaki and others. If you have any questions about Santoku, our consultants will be happy to answer you in an online chat or by email.
