KISUKE Santoku Knife

R 2,600.00

KISUKE santoku knive with 165mm blade made of Yasuki aogami blue paper steel no. 1. The shape of the blade is a unique design by Shunsuke Manaka and is hand forged with a kuriki (burnt Japanese chestnut) handle. "Santoku" means three virtues / three uses and they are ideal for left- or right handed slicing, dicing, or mincing. It is packaged in a cardboard box.

Mr. Yasuo Manaka was the fourth-generation blacksmith who oversaw the manufacture of everyday practical implements for MANAKA, based in Kasukabe, Saitama Prefecture. As one of the remaining traditional blacksmiths in the region, the company produces a variety of products to meet the remaining demand, including kitchen knives, garden tools, scissors and forestry and fishing gear. The principles guiding manufacturing are to create long-lasting tools for daily use with a sharp blade for efficient cutting.

The current head of the business and master blacksmith is fifth-generation Shunsuke Manaka, who conducts wide-ranging research on forging techniques and has begun to introduce a new range of products in the premium KISUKE range, including two sizes of santoku, with 155mm and 165mm blades. In this way he continues the family tradition of continuously innovating on designs, while maintaining proven traditional forging techniques.

Please note: These knives are individually made by hand. The finishing on each blade is unique. The knife you receive might therefore not have the exact pattern as in the picture, but will be the same style.
