Own a Yamawaki MO-V Kuro Tsuchime Santoku Knife from Sakai, Osaka - the heart of Japanese knife-making for over 600 years. "Kurohada" translates to "black skin," referring to the dark, textured appearance of the blade's surface. This distinctive texture is achieved through the Tsuchime technique, where the blade is hammered to create small, irregular dimples on its surface. These dimples not only enhance the knife's aesthetic appeal but also serve a practical purpose by reducing food adhesion to the blade, making slicing and chopping more efficient.

"Santoku" in Japanese means: "can do three things well". Able to easily cut through meat, fish, and vegetables, this Santoku Knife is the quintessential kitchen knife.

Renowned for its versatility, these Molybdenum Vanadium stainless steel knives effortlessly handle various culinary tasks, from delicate slicing to robust chopping. The stain-resistant nature simplifies maintenance, making it an ideal choice for both professional chefs and home cooks.
