YOSHIKANE HAMONO SLD Black Damascus 170mm Santoku - Superior Japanese Craftsmanship

About Yoshikane Hamono

Yoshikane Hamono is a renowned blacksmith shop located in Sanjo, Niigata. Founded in 1919, it is currently led by Mr. Kazuomi Yamamoto, who continues to impress with his constant evolution and excellence in knife-making.

Features of the Santoku Knife

This unique series features a Santoku knife, meticulously forged from SLD tool steel and enveloped in stainless Damascus cladding. SLD is classified as semi-stainless steel, and despite its ability to develop a slight patina with heavy use, it is known for its minimal maintenance requirements and high durability.

Why Choose Our Santoku Knife?

Our SLD steel knife provides superior edge life, toughness, and sharpens with ease. Characterized by its even grinds, thinness behind the edge, a thick spine at the handle with forged distal taper and incredibly thin tips, this Santoku knife ranks among the top for cutting ability and overall quality.

The knife is fitted with an octagonal burnt chestnut handle and buffalo ferrule, making it a choice of both function and aesthetic appeal.
