MASUTANI  VG-1 GOLD  HAMMARED SANTOKU 165MM

This is handcrafted by Masutani San in Takefu, Fukui prefecture. This understated knife is made of high carbon stainless VG1 steel clad with soft stainless and ground thin for superior cutting performance.

The handle is made from Pakka wood, popular for handle making due to its toughness and durability.
