Matsu 170mm AUS-8 Santoku

  • The Matsu AUS-8 line is a series made in the Seki region. This series features extremely thin geometry in AUS-8 stainless steel at 58-59 HRC. These knives have nice convex taper from spine to edge and feature western handles made of pakkawood. Despite how thin they are, they are still on the tough and durable side of things here at the store, and will be great for home cooks and professionals needing workhorse knives alike. Being as thin as they are, they are also great introductions for people looking to experience "laser" grinds as well. We are happy to introduce this to our lineup and we hope you enjoy these as much as we do.
