Santoku 165mm Carbon Knife

Sale price

Regular price $150.00
( / )

White paper shirogami steel, wrapped in a softer jigane steel, with octagonal handles. Beautifully balanced and beautifully simple Japanese kitchen knives with white paper steel blades - a popular choice for Japanese chefs, as it sharpens quickly and easily so is perfect not just for regular sharpening, but also for beginners.

Get these for their weight and feel, if you’re after a truly Japanese experience. The blades are carbon steel (both the inner and outer layers) and will oxidize and rust if not looked after - clean, dry thoroughly, and wipe with a little Camellia Oil if not used daily.

Hand wash and dry well - regular use is the best form of care!

Niwaki Kitchen Knives are made at the Tadafusa Factory in Sanjo, founded in 1948 and now run by the third generation of the Sone family.
