Santoku Knife

The original Japanese Santoku refers to the three cutting tasks for which the knife was designed: slicing, mincing, and dicing. The Ronin Santoku Knife's finely honed blade and handle were crafted to work in harmony by matching the blade’s width and weight to the weight of the ergonomic handle and tang. This profile, coupled with its Granton edge, allows this multipurpose tool to cut all the way to the cutting board, while minimizing the amount of food that sticks to its blade.

The Ronin Series
Ronin Series knives are strikingly sharp, and distinguished by their finely etched design reminiscent of the classic Japanese Seigaiha pattern (waves layered from concentric circles which represent surges of good luck, resilience, and power). The vacuum furnace heat treated and nitrogen cooled blades are crafted from premium high carbon 7Cr17MoV stainless steel with a high order of chromium for enhanced corrosion resistance and tensile strength. With their Rockwell Hardness (HRC) of 58, honing and sharpening is effortless.

Adorned with two marbled resin bands reminiscent of twin moons or celestial wedding rings, Ronin Series knives come equipped with extremely durable mirror polished pakkawood handles that have high water-resisting capabilities, won't crack or split, and are easy to clean and maintain. Pakkawood is exceptionally dense and possesses incredible strength, which is why it is often used in both military and kitchen environments.

The Kessaku Ronin Series 7-Inch Santoku Knife's features, dimensions, and steel composition

Blade Features
Ronin Series knife blades are vacuum furnace heat treated and nitrogen cooled which greatly enhances the blade’s performance, providing excellent wear resistance and durability, while minimizing the chance of chips and fractures occurring under heavy stress. Forged from premium 7Cr17MoV high carbon stainless steel, the composition of this steel results in great edge retention, keeping the knife’s blade sharper, longer. The steel has a Rockwell Hardness (HRC) of 58 for strength, flexibility, and blade edge durability. Each blade is hand sharpened using the complex, three-stage, traditional Japanese Honbazuke method to a perfect 16-degree angle per side. The blade’s elegant etched Japanese Seigaiha pattern promotes less sticking when chopping and dicing.

Handle Features
Ronin Series mirror-polished handles are made of pakkawood, which is extremely durable, and nearly impervious to heat, cold and moisture. Pakkawood is used for military applications due to its incredible strength and exceptional density. The handle has full tang strength, which means the knife’s blade extends all the way through the entire handle for lifelong durability and safety. Its seamless build ensures that no dirt or food debris can ever infiltrate its body, keeping the handle safe and hygienic in busy kitchens. Ergonomically designed for extended use, the handle has a contoured bolster, which provides a comfortable pinch grip for enhanced knife control. It’s finished with a stainless-steel laser etched end cap, which serves as a counterbalance.
