The Santoku is the Japanese counterpart of the European chef's knife. Translated, Santoku means "three virtues" and can be used to prepare fish, meat and vegetables. Visually, the Santoku is reminiscent of a cleaver, but it is not suitable for hacking. Its high, squat blade is sanded on both sides and is ideal for bulky clippings, such as vegetables. The wide blade also makes it easy to move the clippings into the pot or bowl. The KAI Seki Magoroku Pakka Wood Series includes 12 different blade shapes. The high-quality steel with a hardness of 58 HRC and the finely polished blade edge give the knives a high cutting performance. The handle is made of Pakka wood, - a dark hardwood, which is very oily and water resistant. It has a traditional chestnut shape. A polished black polypropylene ferrule complements the modern look of the wood.
