Introducing the Shibata AS Santoku, a beautiful and versatile Japanese knife that boasts exceptional sharpness straight out of the box. Handcrafted by young blacksmith Takayuki Shibata, this knife is made using the traditional san-mai technique of laminating, with Aogami Super steel as the inner core and a soft stainless steel cladding. The stainless cladding helps to reduce maintenance and prevent corrosion, while the reactive inner core ensures outstanding cutting performance.

With a razor-sharp cutting edge and a beautifully formed profile, the Shibata AS Santoku is a joy to use. The even edge grind ensures consistent and precise cutting, while the rosewood octagonal handle provides a comfortable and secure grip.
Each Shibata AS Santoku knife is made with the utmost care and attention to detail, resulting in a product that is of the highest standards in fit and finish. Whether you're a professional chef or a home cook, this knife is sure to become a cherished addition to your kitchen.
