Tanaka Kama Kogyo Santoku 160mm Aogami #2 / stainless
Not a long santoku-bocho but a very pretty one.
Tanaka Kama Kogyo does produce very attractive knives, so much so that they can be a little difficult to acquire. It might take a couple of weeks to get one of these to you.
Worth the wait, we think. Tanaka san is based in Nagasaki prefecture's renowned Matsubara-cho; Matsubara knives are characterized by a slender spine and this means they're comparatively light for their length. In combination with Tanaka Kama Kogyo's high-grade handles, quality steels and cutting feel it adds up to a lot of cutting pleasure in the kitchen.
We really like this black-forged stainless santoku, which combines traditional Japanese sharpness with the easy convenience of stainless. Tanaka san's 160mm stainless santoku sports a lovely polished spine and a quality magnolia and horn handle. Sharp in every way.
