The minute you open the box you'll be in love with the unique hammered finish and the striking rosewood handle that combine to give a look that's definitely Japanese but with the comforting style of a rugged Western handle.
It's a superb all rounder and if you're not rushing to buy it by the time you've finished reading we'd be amazed!
Pair it with an Oster Rob santoku saya to protect and secure it between uses.

Some measurements such as HRC are provided by the manufacturer and should therefore be used as a guide.
