This exquisite 18cm santoku knife is from Shun's limited edition Engetsu series of knives. The Engetsu or 'full moon' range was created for Shun's 20th anniversary.

With the Engetsu's beautiful design, special material and complex production process, Shun has delivered a Japanese masterpiece. An artfully designed 'full moon' pattern of Damascus layers is visible on the highly-polished blade. This optic gives the knife an impressive appearance in combination with the stunning blue and black PakkaWood handle.

The dual-core blade of the Shun Engetsu series is manufactured using an innovative forging process. Two types of steel are forged into a 71-layer Damascus steel: a flexible and resilient VG2 steel with a particularly hard VG10 steel. The laborious braiding of the two steel grades creates a blade with exceptional sharpness which stays sharp for longer, and cuts symmetrically on both sides. The 'full moon' blade pattern results in three different cutting zones: the heel, middle and tip. The deep and intense pattern in the middle of the blade brings additional food release and enables precise slicing. The tip and heel have superior toughness and durability.

A santoku 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. The name means 'three virtues'. Depending on who you ask, the name refers either to the three types of foods it works well with - vegetables, proteins, and fruit - or for the three types of cuts at which it excels - slicing, dicing, and chopping.

Hand-crafted in Japan, the Engetsu santoku knife is packaged in a beautiful wooden gift box.
