The Santoku knife 17 cm  KAI  Wasabi black is a beautiful, Asian-inspired chef's knife. 

It is designed for vegetables, proteins, fruit for slicing, dicing, and chopping, that is to say, it is a multi-purpose knife.
The slight belly curve enables the cook to rock the blade slightly and makes this santoku as easy to use as a chef's knife.
It is especially well suited to a down-and-forward cutting motion (push cut) and many cooks swear by their santoku for top performance.


The Wasabi Black series offers kitchen knives of an exceptional quality that are manufactured with a combination of the traditional Japanese know-how and the latest technology available in the cutlery industry.

These Japanese designed knives feature a Daido 1K6 stainless steel polished blade with a hardness of 58±1 HRC that lend your kitchen the unmistakable Far Eastern flair. 

All the knives of the Wasabi Black series are characterised for having black handles made out of a combination of bamboo powder and polypropylene (PP), making them durable and waterproof.
The handles are impregnated with an antibacterial agent to prevent growth of bacteria. The added strength of a stainless steel ferrule completes the traditional look. 

In contrast to the traditional Japanese wood handle the black handle is not inserted but embraces the blade completely. Thus the blade is closely connected to the handle, not allowing dirt to settle in any gaps.

Because of the Japanese design, these knives don’t have a bolster so the whole edge can be used and the entire length can be sharpened.
The series features traditional Japanese single-bevel blade shapes as well as a selection of double-bevel Western-style blade shapes. Single-beveled blades excel when extremely precise cuts are needed—for example, when preparing sushi. 
Double-beveled blades offer ease of use and versatility. 
Wasabi brings you the best of both worlds. 

Made in Japan with the latest technology of the cutlery industry.
