FKH Santoku Carbon Knife
Fujiwara Kanefusa FKH Series knife provides an SK-4 high carbon steel blade (HRc. 59-59) at an affordable price. Its black pakkawood handles and stainless steel bolsters provide good blade balance and a comfortable, secure grip.
Even though carbon steel knives require more care and maintenance than stainless steel (Because it is prone to discoloring or rusting), there are still many people who prefer high carbon steel knives because they offer better edge sharpness, edge retention and ease of re-sharpening than the majority of stainless steel knives.
The tall blade and rounded nose / tip of the Santoku make it a versatile knife that is well suited to cutting meat, fish, or vegetables; Hence it’s name, which literally means “Three-purpose”. The Santoku is often recommended as a multi-purpose kitchen knife.
