The Kasumi VG-10 Pro Santoku knife is a premium general-purpose kitchen knife. Santoku knives are modern Japanese knives, designed to handle all kinds of kitchen tasks, but based on traditional Japanese knife styles.
This santoku knife is suitable for cutting meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit. It can cut, slice, dice, and chop. Its flat-bottomed blade allows it to make complete contact with the cutting surface, making clean and uniform chopping a breeze.
VG-10 is a stainless steel, which makes it extremely resistant to rust. It's also typically around 61 on the Rockwell hardness scale, making it one of the hardest stainless steels available. Harder steel means the knife will stay sharp for longer, and require sharpening much less frequently.
- The VG-10 steel: this is a special Japanese steel with the advantages of both stainless steel (corrosion resistance) and carbon steel (edge retention).
- Artificial marble handle for a touch of luxury and great feeling in the hand.
