Takamura PRO 165mm Santoku

If you really like your santoku to be really, really sharp we highly recommend this knife for you. Takamura PRO knives are individually hammer forged blades made from powder R2 steel clad in soft stainless. The stainless bolster is seamlessly integrated and attached to a durable pakka-wood handle.

The PRO 165mm santoku knife comes with a matching black wooden saya (sheath).

Genuine Takamura PRO Hammer Forged Knives

In a previous incarnation this range was known as the Takamura Blazen. However as another company also produced the Blazen brand, Takamura have renamed the series PRO.

The PRO series is a huge step up in sharpness to Takamura's budget red handle series.

Each and every Takamura PRO blade is hammer forged by hand and ground to a ridiculously thin and sharp edge. We have seen grown men giggle like a maid café girl when experiencing the joy of cutting with one of these blades.

The Takamura Edge

All PRO level powder steel knives produced by Takamura Hamono are ground to a razor fine double hamaguri edge. These advanced level knives are seriously sharp. Users must be careful not to cut dense items as you may damage the edge. We do not recommend these knives to anyone who feel their knife skills may need brushing up. If you are a little rough with your knives this knife is not for you.

Please note:

  • This blade is sharpened to a fine edge and will chip if mishandled
  • Use only on foods with no hard seeds, bones or tough parts
  • Do not slice through the caramelized parts of meat or crackling
  • Don't chop roughly on the board, use a smooth slicing action
