Kurosaki Fujin AS Santoku

This Japanese santoku knife has a core of non-rust resistant Japanese Aogami Super steel with an outer layer of non-rust resistant steel. AS steel is one of the most sought-after carbon steels in Japanese kitchen knives. The steel is characterized by high hardness and high toughness without the steel being brittle. This steel is perfect for regular use in the kitchen and is easy to sharpen but it is not rust resistant. Stains may appear over time. This double-sided sharpened knife has a very nice hammered pattern. This knife is completely hand-forged by master blacksmith Yu Kurosaki and is one of a kind. The blade is very thin and manually sharpened and has no thickenings, making sharpening very easy.

  • Blade length: 170 mm
  • Total length: 310mm
  • Weight: 140 grams
  • Steel type: core steel: Japanese Aogami Super steel (non-rust resistant) with 2 layers of steel with special Fujin hammerblow pattern.
  • Hardness: 62-63 (Rockwell C)
  • Handle: octagonal American cherry wood and head of black Pakka wood.

Like all Japanese knives, the handmade Kurosaki knives are not dishwasher safe, cleaning and drying after each use is the best treatment for these exclusive products.
