Crafted with VG-2 stainless steel, the heptagon series from Seki Kanetsugu is a smart looking knife that performs well for it's modest price. We particularly like the comfortable (and unique) heptagon Japanese handle along with the tsuchime (hammer-tone) finish.

Japanese Kitchen Knife | Santoku (Home Cook Knife)
Like it's larger cousin, the Gyuto, this is your go-to knife for any and all tasks within the kitchen. Generally Santoku knives are smaller in size than Gyuto, making them versatile in smaller home kitchens or for cooks with fledgling knife skills. Both styles of knife are multi-tasking machines that can be used for any and all cooking preparation tasks.
As is the case with most Japanese kitchen knives, the Santoku is thinner & lighter than other western chef knives, they are normally made from harder steel which can hold a sharper edge.
