The Kasumi Kuro Santoku Knife 17 cm performs a wide variety of cutting tasks, from fine chopping to dicing and paper-thin slicing.
its exotic-sounding Japanese name, the Santoku (sahn-toh-koo) knife
could be taken for an ultra-specific utility knife made for some
delicate task — the province of a professional chef. In fact, the
Santoku is simply a slicing and chopping knife that can be used much
like a traditional European (Western) chef’s knife.
The Santoku's blade and handle are designed to work in harmony by matching the blade's width/weight to the weight of blade tang and handle, and the original Japanese Santoku is a well-balanced knife.
It is beautifully hand crafted in Japan using traditional methods to ensure that the quality is maintained to a high level.
The main cutting blade of Kasumi Kuro is made of Molybdenum vanadium steel (AUS8).
The blades are hardened to Rockwell HRC58.
Both sides of the blade have a beautiful damascus pattern with 32 layers of hammered finish, which prevents food from sticking and therefore makes the knife more hygienic.
Traditional Japanese style, with light handle and heavy blade, allowing it a balance that is more suited to professionals with good technique. .
The handle is in an octagon shape which makes it easy to grip, made from black wood with an epoxy black coating which is water and chemical resistant.
Kasumi knives are produced by Sumikama Hamono Cutlery in Seki, Japan.
Sumikama Cutlery specializes in producing knives from very advanced materials with the most advanced manufacturing techniques.
Kasumi KURO knives are made of AUS8, a high carbon, low chromium stainless steel that has proven, over time, to be a very good compromise between toughness, strength, edge holding and resistance to corrosion. The layers on both sides of the AUS8 core are made by repeatedly folding together two different types of SUS410 High Carbon Stainless Steel pounded to 3/1000th of an inch and then "clad" on each side of the core, until there's 16 exceedingly thin alternating layers.
The edge on a Kasumi knife is beveled at a 15° angle creating a very sharp edge.
Features a wooden Epoxy black coating handle, which is water and chemical resistant.
The other unique feature of the handle is the design. The oval-shaped handle actually has a ridge at the bottom, increasing control and grip.
