Yaxell Super Gou 161 Santoku Knife 16.5cm
This multipurpose Japanese cook's knife is extremely easy to use and accomplishes a wide variety of tasks with ease. it's perfect for finely slicing meat or vegetables while the point allows you to accurately dice onions, shallots or chillies. The deep blade has the strength and power to cut through tougher vegetables while the depth of the blade combined with its straight cutting edge make the knife simple and instinctive to handle. The fluted pockets that are ground into the face of this knife blade reduce friction between the blade and the food being sliced meaning that the knife will glide thought food more easily giving you more control.
Santoku knives are lighter and sharper than a traditional Chef's knife due to the thinness of the blade. These knives are particularly suited to the preparation of vegetables and are ideal for devotees of Asian and Fusion cuisines. Their compact size and superb sharpness make them indispensable in a well-equipped kitchen.
Yaxell Super Gou knives are made by skilled craftsmen in Seki, the famous Japanese city of blades where legendary Samurai swords have been produced for over 700 years. Super Gou knives continue this tradition of fine workmanship. Each one is made from 161 layers of folded Damascus steel with a core of micro carbide powdered SG2 stainless steel affording superior sharpness and edge retention as well as giving the blade its striking good looks. The handles are made of Micarta, a very strong and hygienic material made from layers of canvas cloth set in polycarbonate resin and formed at high temperature and pressure. The resulting knife handle is every bit as hygienic as a stainless steel one but much more comfortable to hold, particularly after prolonged use. The word 'Gou' translates from Japanese as 'the superb'. We think that's far too small a word to describe the unparalleled excellence of the Super Gou knives. Every aspect of the knife, from its clean crisp lines to the Damascus pattern on the blade and its phenomenal handling is made to the very highest standards to stir and arouse your senses. Picking up your Gou knife makes every meal that you prepare into a gastronomic adventure. We believe that a Super Gou knife can provide all the inspiration you need to realise your full culinary potential.
