This Santoku knife combines function and artistry with the Japanese themed blade style. Each XINZUO blade features three layers of steel in each knife.
These layers consist of two out layers made of SuS410 Stainless Damascus Steel and a single inner core made of 10Cr15CoMoV Steel. This allows for different properties to be combined without compromising the steel used for each layer.
The 10Cr15CoMoV Steel used in the core provides a sharp primary cutting edge. This high carbon steel is heat treated to provide a durable cutting edge that isn’t too brittle. To ensure this, the steel is only hardened to a 60-62 HRC on the Rockwell scale which allows for the edge to be very hard but not hard enough to be brittle.
The outer SuS410 Stainless Damascus Steel is used as an anti-corrosion layer. This allows for a beautiful stonewashed finish that features a hammered look and traditional Hamon line without compromising the primary edge.
The handle features a Black Buffalo horn section that leads into a rich Red Wood. This offsets the coloration of the blade as it transitions from a light steel edge to a stone washed design, finishing with the horn and lighter red wood.
The handle design itself is based on more traditional Japanese cooking knives. This provides longer term comfort while using these knives and better control for safer handling.
This 7 inch Santoku knife is a general purpose design. It can be used to mince, dice, and slice food with ease and is considered to be easier to use than a standard Chef's knife or a Kiritsuke style blade. This makes it a great option for those who are beginners or are not confident in their cutting skills.
