Tsunehisa AS Morado Santoku Purchase options

A core of super sharp aogami super steel wrapped in a delightful contrasting kurouchi finished cladding and offset with a vibrant morado wood handle makes this santoku a real all rounder in the performance and looks categories and it's one that from the moment you make your first cut will become a firm favourite in your kitchen.


Great sharpness out of the box thanks to the aogami super core, you'll find this one performs well straight away and will retain its edge very well. 


The kurouchi finish tapering down to expose the aogami super core along the cutting edge and engraved kanji combine nicely with an oval morado wood handle. 


A smooth fit and finish on the oval handle and well balanced it's easy to use although at a push we might have liked a slightly smoother finish around the heel/chiol where you might find it a little rough but nothing particularly worrying.


The edge retention of the AS steel will be good and should retain its edge well for as long as you look after it. 

Value for money

For the price, you're getting a well made knife using Aogami Super steel for the cutting edge and a lovely looking morado handle with a fit and finish worthy of knives at a higher price point. If you're looking for an AS steel then we'd definitely recommend this.
