Hitohira Chromax Santoku 170mm Pakka Handle
Chromax line is perfect for any cook who is looking for a high performing blade with a beautiful hammered finish with minimum rust management. The blade very thin at the edge, and it can chip if used without proper technique or understanding, and the bevel finish can leave some moist ingredients sticking (fresh ginger slices, for example).
Regardless, the pure cutting ability and the fantastic edge holding is very difficult to match in its price category, so we recommend these blades for any home cooks looking to seriously upgrade cutting ability without breaking the bank. It is also an amazing gift for many folks such as newlywed couples, students moving out, and professional cooks taking on a new venture etc.!
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.
