Kanetsugu Pro S knives have Katana Handle motif of hollow 18-8 stainless steel handles seamlessly fitted to their blades. They are very sanitary, non-slip, comfortable, light weight and well balanced. The blades of the Pro S series have a custom-designed convex blade profile that provides outstanding cutting performance and thin cutting edges, which are suitable for fine cutting tasks. The blades are made from AUS-8 Molybdenum Vanadium stainless steel and are corrosion-resistant, tough, strong and easy to re-sharpen. These characteristics make these knives very suitable for first-time users of Japanese knives, but cost-conscious professionals will also appreciate them.
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 knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.
For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems.
We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.
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.
Awesome, very good knife, spectacular sharpe
I dreamed of such a knife for a very long time, and finally decided to order it. I am simply delighted, the knife has an excellent balance, the hand does not get tired at all. For those who spend more than 6 hours in the kitchen, this is a real gift! Our chef has had such a knife for several years now, a great thing!
I ordered 3 knives - Kanetsugu Pro S Series Gyuto 240 mm, Kanetsugu Pro S Series PS-03 Santoku 170mm and Kanetsugu Pro S Series Petty 170 mm. All of them are high quality, light, strong, excellent sharpening and comfortable well in the hand. Fast delivery with tracking number. Thank you very much!
I didn't expect such a high quality santoku. A handle is comfortable to use. The angle is about 15 degrees, but I'll sharpen it at a little higher (someday). The delivery took for about 2 months by funabin (seamail) to Artyom, then to Vladivostok and Moscow. Thanks for helping to JCK team during these difficult times.
Beutiful, balanced, and cuts like a dream.
