The Shigeki santoku knife is an extra sharp, surprising blend of traditional and modern crafts. Forged in Hyogo prefecture, Miki City, Japan, the blade is made from 8 layers of rust-resistant VG-10 steel, folded to create a beautiful damascus pattern and wickedly sharp and resilient edge. The unique handle was designed via an industry-university collaboration to ideally update ergonomics. The knife researchers who designed it believe the 3D grip will fit any hand at any angle, and will lessen fatigue especially during prolonged use. We can guarantee it feels elegant and well-weighted in the hand, and works its way through foods like a dream. The wax coating on the hardwood handle has a soft sheen, and will hold up well to years of use. The Shigeki santoku is a perfect tool for hardworking cooks with high standards for quality and design.
