Takamura Chromax Santoku (universal knife), 170 mm -Deluxe-

€ 199,00 € 149,00 (including VAT)

Takamura Chromax Santoku Tsuchime,

Blade of the new semi-stainless Japanese Chromax steel with two layers of stainless steel for the outside (Sanmai forged) with a beautiful hammered pattern (Tsuchime). The Chromax steel has been specially developed for use in kitchen knives and combines an extreme hardness of 64-65 HrC with good wear resistance and limited sensitivity to chipping. The steel is much less sensitive to oxidation compared to carbon steel and therefore remains beautiful for longer, but when exposed to acids (citrus, onion, etc.) a patina will develop on the knife. Chromax consists of 5% Chromium, 1% Carbon (C), 0.9% Manganese, 1.2% Molybdenum and 0.5% Vanadium. This steel behaves just like Aogami # 2 steel when grinding.

This knife is completely forged by hand is the forge of Takamura. Takamura is one of the more famous knife makers and a number of well-known top chefs cut with Takamura knives such as John Emerson, Gordon Ramsay, Ren`e Redzepi, Mark Best, David Chang, Narisawa and Hiromi Yamada. Japansemessen.nl is very pleased to now be able to offer these knives on the Dutch market for a very special introductory price.

The Nakago (part of the knife that is in the handle) does not extend all the way to the bottom of the handle, so there is no noticeable transition there and this ensures a very smooth finished handle.

A Santoku literally means "three virtues" and is therefore suitable for meat, fish and vegetables. A true all-rounder for the kitchen.
