Hitohira Imojiya ST Tsuchime Damascus Santoku Pakka Handle (Yo)
The Hitohira Imojiya ST line is one that is not unfamiliar with heavy work. Using VG-10 stainless steel, paired with comfortable western-style handles, these knives are a pleasure to work with and care for. With slightly larger handles and leaning towards the heavier side, these blades naturally introduce themselves to those of us with larger hands.
Santoku is an all-purpose blade that is incredibly useful for small kitchens 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.
