The Santoku knife 17 cm KAI Seki Magoroku Redwood 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 Seki Magoroku Redwood captivates by its mirror-finished blade and the exquisitely polished edge that gives the series a high cutting performance. 

These Japanese designed knives feature an AUS8 vanadium - molybdenium stainless steel polished blade with a hardness of 58±1 HRC that lend your kitchen the unmistakable Far Eastern flair. 

The traditional chestnut-shaped handle is made from Redwood. This hardwood naturally has high oil content and is therefore water-resistant. The polished polypropylene bracket adds harmony to the wood’s modern colour. 

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. 
The slightly curved, traditional chestnut-shaped handle makes every knife of the line a right hand knife. 


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

Offered in a gift box.
