Crafted from genuine Damascus steel, the knife features an impressive 67-layer construction. These layers are expertly forged together with various carbon steels, creating a stunning pattern on the blade. Polished to perfection, the blade is not only rustproof but also boasts remarkable sharpness and toughness. With an excellent hardness rating of approximately HRC 62, it promises both durability and cutting precision.

At the core of the blade lies the super-steel Japanese VG-10, known for its high carbon content which ensures scalpel-like sharpness and outstanding edge retention. Each knife is honed using the traditional Honbazuke 3-step method, achieving razor-sharp edges of 8 to 12 degrees. This meticulous process allows the Santoku to tackle any culinary challenge with unparalleled blade resilience.

The handle of the knife is masterfully crafted from Natural White Kegeki Wood, renowned for its corrosion resistance and stunning aesthetic. This material’s superior resistance to heat and moisture guarantees a lifetime of use. Ergonomically designed, the handle offers excellent hand control and comfort, further enhanced by a stabilizing end-cap for nimble performance. An exquisite copper mosaic pin at the center rivet adds a touch of artistry, making the knife as visually striking as it is functional.

High Quality Knife!

I got this knife about 3 weeks ago because I've never used Japanese made knives for work, especially a Santoku. I wanted to ease into it and see how it felt. It��s become my main workhorse. It��s light and sharp as hell. I haven��t sharpened it since I��ve purchased it. It is still held and edge and extremely precise. Absolutely worth the price and more!

Great quality

Quality steel, great feel in your hand and stays sharp! Worth the price.

  • 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.
