Thread: Santoku choice - need help

  1. #21
    The A-Frames Tokyo online store offers a semi-stainless Aritsugu Wa that I've had my eye on for a while.
    Artisugu sounds interesting but I could not find semi-stainles santoku... The one I found is Blue #2 Damascus, which I assume is iron clad of some sort.

    I have one Santoku left on my rack. It's a 180mm Ashi Hamono Ginga. And I don't think I'll ever sell it. Ashi calls it a "home style". It weighs in at a hefty 100 grams. Highly recommended. I doubt the performance is much different from a Suisin IH or other thin Sakai knives made of AEB-L. And the price is well below your target.

    That one was sold fast

    Does anybody knows where can I see/buy Heiji Semi-Stainless Santoku? I've read good things about his Semi-Stainless knives.

    Talk to JKI Jon (he has a vendor sub-forum here). He carries Heji and could probably get you what you want. His "Gesshin" Heiji knives are made to his specs and based on everything else I've seen done to his specs, I'd go with one of those over "standard".

    FWIW, here's the other maker that I was trying to think of earlier:
    Machida Isshi

    no idea if they're any good, and the core is carbon, not stainless.... but you should ignore that and buy one... and then sell it to me when you decide that you don't like it
