The Imayo Santoku Knife is a Japanese all-purpose kitchen knife.
Like a chef’s knife, the santoku is used for just about every cutting job in the kitchen. It works well with vegetables, proteins, and fruit and excels at three types of cuts; slicing, dicing, and chopping. Hollow-ground indentations on the blade help reduce friction so the blade glides through the food more easily.
Imayo is part of Kai’s Seki Magoroku range of knives. Many celebrated swords were born in the Seki area and in the Kamakura era. The master craftsman “Magoroku of Seki” had the original technique of producing beautiful swords which were high quality and had outstanding sharpness. Made in Japan, these beautiful knives feature a hammered finish – tsuchime (tsoo-CHEE-may) in Japanese – which creates air pockets that improves food release when cutting.
Like others in the Kai family, the handle is made from hard-wearing PakkaWood which enables durability and comfort, as well as making it an attractive looking knife to have in your collection.
