Hitohira Futana White #2 Migaki Tsuchime Santoku 170mm Cherry Wood Handle
The Futana series is a great series for anyone getting into Japanese kitchen knives for elegant aesthetics and beautifully finished wooden handles. This line features White #2 carbon steel that will hold a sharp edge for a long time and will be easy to sharpen (one must keep clean and dry it often to prevent it from rusting, and a benign discolouration will form regardless).
We highly recommend the Futana blades as gifts for culinary students, professional cooks, young professionals moving into their first apartment, newly weds and more!
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.
