More info

Looking for a Japanese-style at an affordable price and that you can use for most of your food cuts? Your search is over. The Wusaki Ebony AUS8 santoku knife that we present you in this page is the knife you need. Indeed, this polyvalent kitchen knife is perfect for working with fruits, vegetables, and boneless meats. It is therefore an essential kitchen tool for the preparation of multiple recipes.

This knife belongs to the Wusaki Ebony AUS8 range, which offers kitchen knives that are suitable for professional chefs as well as for home cooks. They are made in the north of Canton, which is the capital city of the Guangdong province in Western China. This region is historically known for its vast know-how in the manufacturing of cutlery. The quality standards of Wusaki knives' manufacturing comply with those put in place by the professionals in the European industry. 

The blade

It is made of AUS-8 stainless steel, which is a Japanese steel highly appreciated by cooks around the world. Its high content of chromium (14.5%) and molybdenum make the blade resistant to corrosion. This is a highly valuable characteristic, because it means that the knife is suitable for a professional usage. 

This type of steel is also enriched with tungsten and carbon (0.8%), which are two elements that increase the hardness of the blade. With a hardness level of 59 HRC in the Rockwell scale, the blade is easy to hone, which is not the case for most blades made of other types of Japanese steel. For sharpening the knife, it is best to use a whetstone, but to hone it before every usage you can use a sharpening steel.

Perhaps the most original characteristic of this blade is its hammered surface. This is done by a mechanical press, and the dimples that are formed on the surface make the blade less sticky, which is also the purpose of the "scallops" along the edge. In addition, the hammered surface also enhances the original look of the knife.

The handle

It is made of ebony wood, which is an exotic material that is mostly used in the manufacturing of luxurious items. In the cutlery industry, ebony wood is reserved for high-end knives as it stands out for its durability and resistant to humidity, as well as for its natural beauty with elegant dark tones.

The surface of the wood is varnished so that it can resist better to humidity. Furthermore, its oval shape is perfect for both right and left handed cooks as it provides a comfortable grip. The bottom end of each handle has the Japanese character "Tiger" engraved on it, which is just another authentic detail that completes the great look of the knife.

Care tips

Always wash the knife by hand with a sponge and a bit of mild soap. After washing it, wipe it with a soft cloth so that no humidity traces appear on the blade or the handle. Then, store it in a safe, dry place such as in a knife block or a in a chef roll bag. When you'll take the knife out of the box for the first knife, the blade will be covered with protection oil. This is completely normal, and all you need to do is to rinse it off before the first usage.

Last but not least, this knife is sold in a black, robust box. The elegance of its packaging makes this knife a great option to offer as a gift to anyone passionate about fine cutlery. The interior of the box is filled with rigid foam so that the knife remains well protected at all times.
