Shun Kaji Double Hollow-Ground Sumo Santoku Knife

Crafted in Japan exclusively for Williams-Sonoma, our premium Kaji line features strong, razor-sharp blades that merge new technology and centuries-old handcrafting traditions. The sumo santoku blade's extra heft gives it plenty of cutting power for larger jobs. The double-wide blade and added weight of this blade give it the focused power to tackle larger jobs than a standard Santoku. Dual rows of hollow grounds shed large slices from the blade and the extra width is great for scooping up bits from the cutting board. Blade is constructed with a core of SG-2 powdered steel clad in a true Damascus layer of forged nickel and stainless steel. Inspired by centuries-old samurai sword-making techniques, the blade's construction creates a super-sharp cutting edge. Handle is made of moisture-resistant, resin-infused PakkaWood, shaped for comfort and control. This NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens. Handcrafted in Japan. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Double wide half the size of a cleaver blade. Shares slot with cleaver. Large knife excellent weight and balance. Better than chef knife. I have the whole set and by far this unique knife is my instant favorite. Can be delicate or has the weight to go through cheese or heavy thick salamis or such.have hand and neck problems. No problems at all, makes everything easy. First choice 75% of the time.you will need to store in a drawer or open box if you don't want to share the cleaver slot. It will not fit in any other slot in the Kaji block. Very wide but worth the storage problem of having no slot.. If you don't have the cleaver that's where you store it. I have the cleaver blade facing left and the santakou blade facing right sharing the same slot and taking it out slowly and putting it back slowly. No big deal
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Size, Strength, Versatile, Sharpness, Shape, Weight

My Favorite Knife!
July 27, 2013
This is my absolute favorite 'go to' knife in my kitchen. After months of researching knives I took the plunge and purchased the Shun Kai Double Hollow Ground Sumo Santoku knife while on sale. I was stunned as I sliced and diced veggies effortlessly. This is a high quality knife that is super-duper sharp! Do not purchase the electric Japanese knife sharpener-send it to manufacturer to be professionally sharpened.
Pros: Quality, Balance, Size, Sharpness, Shape
