We will set up a triumph and welcome 10 years to commemorate this year. By applying the technology developed when launching various series, it is decided to announce a limited series that will be a concept model. Since ancient times, fictional creatures have become a symbol in the direction of the north, Xuanwu in the north, Suzaku in the south, blue dragon in the east, and white tiger in the west. This time, we developed Suzaku as a concept. Limited production of only 50 sets worldwide, will be stamped a serial number on all. We plan to announce a white tiger next year. Of course, practical construction is also taken into consideration, but it is a limited series that will be brought together and developed to bring out a unique presence unique to others. The blade is rainbow Damascus and the core metal is blue steel. The pattern of this blade is an image of Suzaku (peacock) feathers. The handle is the newest type of acrylic designed like Suzaku.
Total number of sets in the world: 50

Santoku literally translates as ‘three benefits’ – slicing, dicing and mincing - and is the shape of a traditional Japanese chef’s knife. The breadth of the Santoku and its gently curved profile make this an ideal tool for speed cutting against knuckle. This technique provides safe comfortable cutting action ONLY when the fingertips are clawed well away from the edge with the blade resting on knuckle. This most versatile blade makes an ideal main knife for those who cut more fruit and vegetables, with occasional meat and fish preparation.
SPECIAL NOTES: Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers or for any use other than food preparation. ONLY FOR CULINARY USE.
Santoku literally translates as ‘three benefits’ – slicing, dicing and mincing. The breadth of blade is ideally suited for cutting against the knuckle with speed – this technique provides safe comfortable cutting action only when the fingertips are clawed well away from the edge with the blade resting on the knuckle. The relatively straight profile and extra width, apart from multi function use on raw flesh, makes this a great choice as the primary blade for those who prepare mostly vegetables. This perfectly balanced knife will float through any task. Particularly well suited to a more horizontal or slicing action to cut as opposed the more classic French techique of roll cutting on a board. The Aogami Santoku is particularly evenly balanced and is widely deemed to be one of the most comfortable general purpose blades in its price range and beyond.
SPECIAL NOTES: Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers etc. Designed specifically for food preparation, FOR CULINARY USE ONLY.PLEASE NOTE: Handle wood may vary while the red Bubinga wood is being discontinued and replaced with Walnut wood.
