Hitohira STK V10 Santoku 165mm Rosewood Handle
The STK line has got so much going for it; full stainless steel for ease of maintenance, both Damascus AND hammered finish as well as a beautiful dark wood handle. The edge is thin enough to not wedge terribly on hard root vegetables such as sweet potatoes, but more durable than some of our more performance-focused blades such as T10 Tsuchime series.
We recommend the STK line for cooks looking for a balanced, easy-to-care-for blades with both performance and aesthetics in mind.
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.
