Fits the hand. Well balanced and high quality. I look forward to many years of use.

Great Entry Level Knife!

Amazing look, feel and cuts on point. Great for various cutting, meats, veggies and fruits. Ideal entry level kitchen knife that I bought for work! Comes with a sheath and case. Will buy more in their series!

I've been using a Wusthof chef's knife for a few years and it was my natural selection for everyday veggie chopping. This santoku is giving it serious competition. The blade is a but more steamlined for veggie chopping. I pretty much prepped a whole Watermelon with no force using this knife.

Boyd Dobson

This knife has exquisite fit and finish. It is incredibly sharp and makes slicing vegetables and meat almost effortless. It comes beautifully boxed this is the type of kitchen tool that makes everything you do with it more enjoyable.

  • What is the best way to clean and maintain my Okingjoy knife?
    Hand wash only. NOT DISHWASHER SAFE. After every use, hand clean with warm soapy water and dry with a towel. Avoid leaving the blades wet and always wipe dry after washing. These blades contain high levels of carbon which can lead to rust spots. However high carbon blades are EXTREMELY sharp. So be careful!

    If the blade is very dirty or if food has stuck to it, you can use a soft-bristled brush to gently clean it. After cleaning and sharpening the blade, apply a thin layer of oil to the blade and handle.

  • How to sharpen an Okingjoy knife?
    To sharpen a knife, you will need a whetstone or knife sharpener.

    To use a sharpening stone, first soak the stone in water for about 10 minutes.

    Next, lay the knife flat on the stone and tilt the blade so that it forms a 10 to 15-degree angle with the stone.

    Using long, even strokes, move the blade across the stone in a back-and-forth motion, making sure to maintain the angle of the blade.

    After a few strokes, move the blade to the other side of the stone and repeat the process.

    You must sharpen the blade along its entire length and may need to repeat the process several times to achieve the desired sharpness level.
  • What is Damascus steel?
    The origin of the name "Damascus steel" is controversial: two Islamic scholars, Al-Kindi and Al-Biruni (c. 800-873 CE), both wrote about swords and sword steels based on the appearance, the geographical location of where they were produced or forged, or the name of the blacksmith. Both authors also mention the terms "damascene" or "Damascus" when describing the swords to some extent.

    Based on these references, there are three possible sources where the term "Damascus" in the context of steel comes from:

    Al-Kindi refers to swords forged in Damascus in Siberia as "Damascene", but it is important to note that these swords are not described as having a wavy appearance to the surface of the steel. Al-Biruni refers to a blacksmith of swords called Damascus who made crucible steel swords. In Arabic, the word "Damascus" means "watered", and Damascus blades are often described as having a water pattern on their surface.

    The most common explanation is that the steel is named after the capital of Syria, Damascus, the largest of the cities of the ancient Levant. The most common explanation is that the steel is named after the capital of Syria, Damascus, the largest city in the ancient Levant. These may be swords made or sold directly in Damascus, or simply the appearance of the typical patterns, in comparison with damask fabrics, which also bear the name Damascus.
