Kikuichi Warikomi Gold Santoku

Our Price: $199.95

Kikuichi Warikomi Gold Santoku:
  • Blade Length: 6.7 in. (170mm)
  • Handle Length: 122 mm
  • Weight: 5.4 ounces
  • Handle Type: Wood (Mahogany)
  • Bevel Type: Double Bevel
  • Steel type: VG-1

  • Kikuichi's Warikomi line uses high quality VG-1 sometimes known as V-Gold steel. This VG-1 (Gold) Steel is not only rare but it is highly prized due to its properties; will hold an edge (comparable to VG-10), it is tough and will chip less than a damascus clad knife, and is stain resistant. Warikomi is made San Mai style (manufactured with a soft stainless steel) like most VG steel knives; this is because the steel is so hard it would be difficult to thin and shape the blade without the softer steel coat. The Santoku is an all-purpose knife and is suited to handle nearly every cutting task, however with its flat blade profile it is uniquely adept at helping prep vegetables. Kikuichi makes their knives in Nara, Japan.
