Kikuichi Hammered 7 inch Santoku Knife Warikomi Tsuchime
Item ID: KK-WGAD18-7-0SP
The Kikuichi Warikomi Tsuchime 7 inch Santoku Knife makes for extremely easy slicing. The Elite Warikomi Tsuchime 7 inch Santoku knife has a central core of extremely hard VG-10 stainless steel (HRC60) surrounded by 16 layers of slightly softer Damascus stainless steel to provide both flexibility and dramatic visual appeal. Warikomi means a core surrounded by another metal. Tsuchime simply means "dimpled" pattern on the blade, helpful for reducing sticking of food during slicing. The high carbon composition of VG10 steel core produces the tightest grain structure in steel, resulting in a sharper, harder edge than other stainless steel alloys found in typical European knives. Each knife is hand forged, hand tempered, hand sharpened and hand finished with a hand hammered pattern unique to each knife. Each knife from Kikuichi comes with a lifetime guarantee and free re-sharpening by Kikuichi. Tsuchime knives are made in Japan.
