The Santoku is the most popular knife in the Japanese home and considered to be an all rounder in the kitchen. The meaning of Santoku is the “three virtues” in Japanese and is a reference to its multi purpose and versatility. It can be used to prepare fish, chicken and most fruits and vegetables but is too small for large food items like watermelons and bigger cuts of meat. The Santoku is great as an alternative if you have a larger chef’s knife as most Santokus come in at around 165mm to 180mm its easy to handle and has a snubbed nose to it.

The 5000MCD Series by MIYABI embodies the beauty and sharpness of Japanese knives. The blade core is made from MC63 micro carbide powder steel and surrounded by 100 other steel layers, producing a Rockwell hardness rating of around 63 and supreme edge retention.

The blade is honed on both sides using the Honbazuke technique to create an ultra-sharp finish. Every blade is honed by hand at a razor-sharp angle of 9.5° to 12°. The traditional D-shaped handle made from masur birch makes for an evenly-balanced knife, making it easy for the user to stay in control and effortlessly cut up food. The elegant end cap adds the finishing touch to the handle design.
