Tokushu Knife Tsuchime SLD 165mm Santoku
Experience the fusion of traditional Japanese craftsmanship and modern functionality with the Tokushu Knife Tsuchime SLD 165mm Santoku. The core of this knife features SLD semi-stainless steel, originally designed by Hitachi for cutting other steels, offering an impressive edge retention similar to carbon steel, yet with significantly easier maintenance.
Ideal for both professional and home cooks, this knife has been crafted with a unique workhorse grind and a long taper, perfect for tackling harder foods like potatoes and squash with ease. The semi-stainless cladding requires only minimal maintenance - a quick wipe before storage is all it takes to keep this knife in excellent condition.
Each knife showcases our exclusive "Tokushu Knife" Kanji and is finished with a high-quality handle, handcrafted by local artisans in Sanjo, Japan. The walnut wa handles are among the finest quality available, providing both aesthetic appeal and functional design.
