HOCHO SANTOKU - European Style
The TADAFUSA HOCHO SANTOKU is one of our most popular Japanese Chef knives due to it's versatility and honesty. With the razor-sharp edges you’ll easily achieve super-skinny slices of onions, tomatoes and other diced vegetables. Loved by chef's for it's balance and flexibility, the Santoku is also great for peeling pumpkins as it flexes around curves for precision and control.
The Santoku is a larger knife great for slicing, dicing, and chopping
European style: A decade ago Tadafusa engaged a renowned female industrial designer, Fumie Shibata, to design a European style range for the western market. Hand forged, this range is offered in triple layered blades of rust-resistant SLD steel (HRC of 60) and clad with soft stainless steel. This acts as a blanket and protects the harder steel in the core from breaking or shattering in to pieces. These knives come with heat treated semi-charcoaled chestnut wood handles for moisture and bacteria resistance, and the core steel offers a sharp blade which holds its edge.
