Daisuke Nishida White #1 Santoku kurouchi Purchase options

Santoku translates as 3 uses: slicing, dicing and mincing and if you only buy one type of knife this is the one we recommend.

A standard sized santoku perfect for all the main jobs in the kitchen. This version has a kurouchi finish (also known as a blacksmith finish which helps protect the steel) on both sides. This is a carbon steel knife and will react and develop a patina.

Performance

White #1 steel is known for its ability to achieve an incredibly fine edge, it's the steel of choice for sushi knives. Keep it in shape with a few strokes of a ceramic rod and it will serve you well.

Beauty

There is a raw beauty about these knives, you can really tell that they've been created with a great deal of pride and skill. The handles aren't as good looking as some of our other knives but they look fine.

Ease of care

This knife is made of carbon steel so the knife is reactive and you will get a patina develop over time which some people love and others hate! Usual rules apply, don't put in the dishwasher, don't cut any really hard veg and don't slam the blade down on the chopping board (no glass chopping boards either please!). A quick wipe after use will keep the blade looking great.

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

Black cardboard box with red stepped inlay.
