Product description

Introducing the limited edition ZDP-189 Damascus Santoku knife by Osamu Yoshida, a true masterpiece that won't be produced again. Osamu-san, a skilled blacksmith, personally handles the lamination, forging, and heat treatment of this exceptional knife. Each piece is flawless and brand new.

The Santoku shape is perfect for chefs and home cooks seeking a versatile, medium-sized knife with a focus on vegetables. This ZDP-189 steel knife with a Damascus pattern is a rare find, especially at this price point.

The unique and extraordinary Damascus pattern is achieved through various techniques, ensuring that each knife is one-of-a-kind. The blade is complemented by a traditional Japanese handle made of durable rosewood.

Crafted at Yoshida Hamono's renowned smithy in Japan, a family company with a rich tradition in producing handcrafted tools and Japanese swords, this Santoku embodies their expertise in forging ZDP-189 steel. The steel's exceptional qualities and long-lasting sharpness have been proven through systematic testing.

The core of the knife is made of ZDP-189 steel, known for its outstanding edge retention. It is laminated, with a strong steel core covered by a softer stainless steel layer. This construction ensures prolonged sharpness, ease of sharpening, and protection against external elements.

ZDP-189 steel stands out in the industry due to its high carbon content and the ability to be hardened up to HRC 65-67 without chipping issues. Its manufacturing processes make it one of the toughest steels available, favored by serious users and professional chefs for its superior cutting performance and extended edge retention.

Experience the unparalleled craftsmanship and cutting performance of the limited edition ZDP-189 Damascus Santoku, a true treasure in the world of knives.
