Sakai Takayuki Aogami Super Blue Kengata Santoku Purchase options

An exceptional large santoku with a highly versatile kengata shaped tip making it ideal for a huge range of jobs in any kitchen.

The overall sharpness and edge retention from the super blue steel make this one a real workshorse you'll be reaching for every day.

Performance

Sharpness out of the box is excellent, at this price point we sometimes find a knife might benefit from a quick hone or strop to just bring the edge up to full sharpness but this one is great from the moment you use it and the sharpness rating is very impressive. 

You'll be reaching for this one on a regular basis.

Beauty

These knives are really striking, the blades with their beautiful kurouchi finish go really well with the golden colour of the Japanese Zelkova wood and mahogany handle. The two kengata styles of the santoku and gyuto 210mm also give them an extra something visually.

Comfort

Durability

Being super blue they will hold an edge for a long time before needing resharpening. The usual advice of not cutting through super-hard veg like butternut squash (in its whole state) still applies!

Ease of care

Just rinse and wipe, don't scrub the kurouchi too much and don't go near the dreaded dishwasher!

Value for money

For a company with a long and established reputation we think these are good value for money. Solid, well made knives that won't disappoint.

Technical details

Our aim is to measure everything as accurately as possible but some specifications (such as hardness for example) are provided by the manufacturer and therefore should be used as a guide only.

What you get

A green presentation box with stepped inlay and a cardboard guard over the blade.
