-Takefu special high carbon steel/stainless steel lamination*
-Laminated Western style handle, partial tang

-Blade length: 170mm (6-3/4")

*It is important to make sure that you dry your high carbon steel knife thoroughly after washing.  Any moisture left on the blade will cause it to rust, making the blade more susceptible to knicking or chipping.

Please note:  many of the Miki Hocho / Japanese kitchen knives that are for sale here have either full tang or partial tang handles.  A partial tang handle does not equate to a decrease in quality.  Partial tang knives are less expensive because they require less labor for the toolmaker.  If you have any questions about a product please do not hesitate to contact us.

    A great knife, especially considering the very modest price. We use it every day, it sharpens up nicely and holds a very keen edge.

    I received this Santoku All Purpose Kitchen Knife as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago and have been absolutely thrilled with it! The knife has incredible balance and a great feel in your hand, and most importantly, it can effortlessly cut through anything I've put in front of it on the cutting board. I can't wait to add to my kitchen cutlery collection with Suzuki-ya knives! Highly recommended!
