    Wha.. Single bevel?

    My Shig Santoku is a 165. It's like having a sharp index finger that cuts food like a laser

    Nice one, Schanop

    Thanks for the info. I have never used a takeda, have lusted after them tho..

    To me, granted I'm a noob, Nakiri's and Santoku's are both pervasive primarily for the same reason 240 and 270 Gyuto's are pervasive, personal preference. There's zero doubt that other valid reasons exist such as space constraints, etc but personal preference seems like it would be a prime mover.

    We get NHK world and Japanology on our PBS station here.Was just watching a program on organic farming & cooking with fresh vegitables in Japan.All this home cooking using drop nose Santoku & Gyuto cutting up all kinds of food.

    I have a 247mm,223mm,182mm,& 174mm all forged carbon steel flatter profile drop nose knives.Also bought a older Takeda 270mm more gradual drop as is the 182mm

    All these blades have a tip diff. in each because they are hand forged.Excellent cutters thick & thin.

    Exactly what I've though after looking at pictures. Great knife anyway and price is right. Congrats on this purchase

    Speaking of good prices I've just pulled the trigger and got a new toy:



    Yamawaku 165mm Santoku in V2.
    For a 55$ delivered it was hard to resist.
    Not that I need another knife, just something else to play and rehandle
