Tsunehisa Kurouchi Aogami Super Tsuchime Santoku 165mm
Tsunehisa, originating from Tosa, curates knives from blacksmiths spanning multiple regions of Japan. With a rich array of steels and finishes available under their brand, Tsunehisa steadfastly commits to providing outstanding value alongside a meticulously handmade fit and finish.
Crafted with Blue Super high carbon steel and clad in stainless steel, these knives promise lasting edge retention and simplified maintenance. The distinct hammered finish aids in food release during the cut by forming air pockets between the steel and the food, culminating in a first-rate cutting experience.
This Santoku knife features a core steel of Aogami Super (blue super steel) with a hammered (tsuchime) kurouchi finish, all encased in stainless. With a hardness rating of ~63, these knives possess the exceptional edge retention characteristic of Aogami Super, but avoid excess brittleness.
