Description: The santoku is the traditional Japanese chef's knife. This comfortable design is a fantastic multipurpose chopper. The Santoku style has quickly become the new favorite for chefs in the West.
Ohishi Arashi No Nami chef’s knives feature a beautiful damascus (suminagashi) forged from low carbon steels, creating a rich, captivating design of alternating matte gray and silver throughout the surface of the blade. Each one is a unique pattern -- a true work of art.
The many layers of soft, resilient damascus surround a central SG-2 powdered metallurgical (PM) stainless steel core. Takefu SG-2 is considered by many knife aficionados to be among the highest performing steels used in modern knives. It can be sharpened to a razor edge -- ensuring a silky and effortless cut. Powder metallurgy improves the alloy significantly creating smaller crystalline size and an incredibly strong blade. It is hardened to Hrc 61-63 (very hard!). This gives the blade an exceedingly tough, long lasting and durable edge that is relatively easy to sharpen.
Following in the best tradition of knife making, a steel ferrule is forge-welded to the tang to ensure that food particles cannot become lodged between the tang and the handle. The triple-riveted tang runs the full length of the handle for strength and longevity. The central pin is a beautiful mosaic design that really helps the handle stand out. The nicely contoured, comfortable handle is made from black micarta. Micarta is a durable material that holds up exceptionally well to the rigorous demands of a home or commercial kitchen. Even when wet, micarta offers a less slippery surface than traditional wood handles.
Ohishi Arashi No Nami chef’s knives provide an unparalleled combination of high performance and elegance. Arashi No Nami is sure to become your ‘go-to’ knife in the kitchen.
