Hitohira Futana S3 Nashiji Santoku 180mm Pakka Handle (Yo)
This product is currently sold out.
The Futana series is a great series for anyone getting into Japanese kitchen knives for elegant aesthetics and beautifully finished wooden handles. The S3 line features a fully stainless blade for ease of maintenance, whereas the SB line boasts Blue Super carbon steel that will hold an incredible edge for a long while (one must keep clean and dry it often to prevent it from rusting, and a benign discoloration will form regardless).
Santoku is an all-purpose blade that is incredibly useful for tight spaces and it is the one that most home cooks should purchase first. Even folks who use paring knives for everything can quickly get used to this blade since it brings so much utility in a compact size.
