Kanetsugu Pro J Series PJ-03 Santoku 170mm (6.6inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

Kanetsugu Pro J knives use a new high-grade Japanese cobalt stainless steel called ZA-18 (HRc. 60-61) for their cutting edge and an outer cladding of AUS-2 stainless steel for additional strength and toughness. The ZA-18 steel and Kanetsugu’s famous Hamaguri-ba convex blade profile provide next level cutting performance and edge retention. The black pakkawood handle, red fiber spacer and slanted stainless steel bolster provide a comfortable grip good, good blade balance and a stylish appearance. In addition, the Tsuchime (“Hammered pattern”) texture of the blades is not only unique and attractive, but also helps to prevent food from sticking to the blade.

The tall blade and rounded nose / tip of the Santoku make it a versatile knife that is well suited to cutting meat, fish, or vegetables; Hence it’s name, which literally means “Three-purpose”. The Santoku is often recommended as a multi-purpose kitchen knife.

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.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

    Kanetsugu Pro J Series Santorum 170 mm

    I am the principle cook in the house. I am professionally trained, and appreciate good knives. And their care and mantainence. This knife was bought for my wife. An exquisite baker, but hard on knives, and this steel combination is a bit more tolerant of a bit of abuse. But I will say, it is beautiful, sharp, well balanced thing. I am very impressed. Sorry about the overtones. Not sexist, but two strong willed people in a kitchen. Seeking to keep loving each other, with lethal weapons in hand.
