A santoku knife is often said to be a general-purpose kitchen knife; however, this does not make any sense if its blade is weak. If you agree with this perspective, the santoku knife from Takamura Hamono can be a reliable choice.
The blade is made of Super Gold steel, also known as powdered stainless high-speed steel. What makes this material appealing is that it is extremely sharp and its sharpness lasts almost eternally if properly used within its cutting capacity.
Its wine-red handle makes this knife look aesthetically attractive in terms of design. It can also serve as a small decoration even when unused.
