Hitohira NM V10 Damascus Santoku 170mm Pakka Handle
This NM line is made from VG-10 stainless steel with stainless Damascus clad. NM refers to the first two letters of the two makers responsible for the blade. The steel feels incredibly finely grained, and we found that it offers great edge at around #1000 - #3000, with maximum edge retention.
It features a convex ground bevels, making these knives extremely thin behind the edge, yet they maintain good thickness on the spine for stability. We recommend these knives for both experienced users and beginners with practicality and performance 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.
