JKC 63 Layer Santoku (160mm / 175mm)

Santoku literally translates as ‘three benefits’ – slicing, dicing and mincing. The breadth of blade is ideally suited for cutting against the knuckle with speed – this technique provides safe comfortable cutting action only when the fingertips are clawed well away from the edge with the blade restingon the knuckle. The relatively straight profile and extra width, apart from multi function use on raw flesh, makes this knife one of the best knives for the preparation of vegetables. This perfectly balanced knife will float through any task.

Particularly suited for those that use a more horizontal or slicing action to cut rather than rolling the blade on a board.

These stunningly beautiful, scalpel sharp stainless 63 layer Damascus blades have exceptionally keen enduring edges whilst being easy to re sharpen.

The central core of the 63-layer JKC Damascus Collection steel is a High Carbon Chrome Vanadium (HCCV) Stainless Steel. HCCV is a recent addition to the selection of Super Steels used by Japan’s most revered smiths in the manufacture of outstanding culinary knives. JKC 63 Layer Damascus Collection blades are hardened to 58:60 HRC providing very enduring edges, which are incredibly easy to resharpen.

The 63 layers imbue the blade with a truly eye-catching wood like rippled pattern; this intricate complex process not only creates an aesthetically delightful effect. More importantly, layering adds immense strength thus facilitating a thinner, yet stronger, and therefore sharper blade.

The handles are composed of Ebony black Pakkawood; a laminated hard wood which is silicon injected for optimum longevity and hygiene.  Pakkawood is reserved for the finest knives. The handles are secured to the tang by three steel rivets. Traditional handles have seen resurgence amongst professional chefs who find them supremely ergonomic and durable.

SPECIAL NOTES: Hand wash only. Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers etc. Designed specifically for food preparation, FOR CULINARY USE ONLY.
