Kumagoro Santoku Knife 180mm Damascus
This popular Kumagoro Santoku Damascus Knife has a narrow spline and a thin, single-bevel blade that makes it a very versatile, three-purpose knife – use it for slicing, dicing and mincing...
The Damascus steel used to craft this knife is made by cladding a hard core with a softer steel. This Santoku Knife’s blade is made using ZA-18 Cobalt Steel from the Aichi Steel Company as the core, along with a 73 layers of AUS-2 Stainless Steel, to create a most beautiful knife.
Japanese knives are only sharpened on one side, either right- or left-handed; this one is right-handed.
This Kumagoro knife has a traditional D-shaped handle, made from Baked Chestnut that is intended to fit comfortably into the curve of the fingers as they curl around the handle when gripping the knife. When held properly, the handle stabilizes the grip and gives better control.
Kumagoro brand knives are handmade, so they can vary in size and thickness. Unevenness in finish can occur.
