The Togiharu Hollow Ground line is created out of 8A steel and a composite wood handle. The dimples on the surface of the knife function as air pockets to help prevent ingredients from sticking to the knife, making this line ideal for busy cooks. In comparison to the Togiharu Inox, this line’s blade is slightly thicker and heavier which makes it better for rougher work.
The santoku, meaning "three virtues", is an all-purpose knife that takes its name from its ability to easily prepare meat, fish, and vegetables. The shorter and wider blade makes the santoku well-suited for smaller kitchen spaces and keeps knuckles well above the cutting board for comfortable chopping.
