This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife that has a good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However, it may get rust, if kept in wet condition.
The Santoku came with a very sharp edge right out of the box, it has great balance and has quickly become my go to knife for all my vegetable prep. JapaneseChefsKnife.com provided extremely fast shipping and great communication. I would not hesitate to order from them again.
I bought this for home use, not a professional. It feels very light in my hand, has lots of knuckle clearance, and is very sharp. Love the quality. Only had it a few weeks so have no experience sharpening it yet. It replaced a cheap $10 stainless knife and the difference in quality is huge, well worth upgrading.
We love this knife because the weight , balance, curvature, are all great for everyday work. It is sharp but because it's stainless, does not need much maintenance.
the knife is good!!!
