The Brieto Triple Layer Professional Collection is constructed from a 3 layer steel. A layer of High Carbon Stainless Steel is sandwiched between two layers of soft stainless steel. The extremely high quality of the High Carbon Steel, which is intrinsically hard and durable, ensures an enduring edge. The layers of soft steel make this knife extremely easy to resharpen. Fully forged, with a full tang and bolster the balance of these professional knives is wonderful.
This shape of blade is known in Japan as ‘Santoku’. Literally translated this means ‘three benefit’. Slicing, dicing and mincing with this knife is not a chore but a Zen like experience. With it’s broad blade and 160mm (~6”) length this is the most versatile and useful knife you will ever purchase, perfect for the preparation of all foods. With perfect balance this knife will float through any task. If you only ever buy one knife, in our opinion this should be it.
