The name Santoku stands for "Three Virtues". The name refers to the versatility of the blade. For instance, it can be used for mincing, dicing, and slicing meat, fish, and vegetables. The Seijaku Fusion Series Santoku knife is recommended for beginner to intermediate chefs.
The Santoku is one of my top three favorite knives due to its versatility and ease of use. I understand why this shape of the blade is the number one sold in all of Japan. I recommend it for every skill level, but if you are looking for a good first knife that will last you a lifetime, and help you perfect your culinary arts, then this is the one.
The Santoku knife from Sapega's Seijaku Fusion Series is a Japanese chef knife with a hand-forged blade made from a VG-10 steel core encased by 67 layers of high-carbon Damascus stainless steel, providing exceptional strength, durability, and stain resistance. The blades created in this way are extremely hard. The high-quality materials combined with elaborate manufacture make the Santoku from Seijaku Fusion Series a very durable knife for your collection.
Sapega's Santoku knife from the Seijaku Fusion Series is unique from the blade to handle. where the blade is sharpened twice by hand on rotating stones and then polished on a leather wheel. This so-called Honbazuke honing gives the knife its extreme sharpness. Knives created using this technique are characterized by their excellent cutting-edge. All our knives come in Honbazuke condition. Meaning 'with a true edge'.
The ergonomic handle of ebony wood is a perfect finish to the high-quality steel blade, with a different grain of wood used for each knife, resulting in a truly unique product. The custom design end cap and subtly styled mosaic pin complete the knife's elegant look and are a key design feature of the Seijaku Fusion Knife Series.
