The Korin Special Inox is an original design created by Korin's resident knife master, Chiharu Sugai and Knife System's founder, Junro Aoki. The special grade stain resistant AUS-10 steel has a higher carbon content, giving it the cut and feel similar to a carbon knife without the maintenance. Korin recommends this line for those with experience using a sharpening stone. The attractive orange handle is made of an easy-to-clean and bacteria resistant POM molded handle and topped with a stainless steel cap. With superior balance and a slightly weighted feel, these knives are comfortable in the hand and a pleasure to use.
Drawing from a tradition of Japanese craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail, the collections at Korin showcase exceptional sharpness and time-tested durability. We are dedicated to bringing the highest quality Japanese knives to your kitchen, so you can experience the unparalleled quality of Japanese craftsmanship in your home or restaurant.
Purpose of Santoku
The santoku, meaning ‘three virtues’, is a multi-purpose knife that takes its name from its ability to easily handle meat, fish and vegetables. The high profile of the blade makes the santoku well-suited for home use, keeping the knuckles well above the cutting board.
High quality knife, great for daily use in a professional kitchen.

I’ve been using this knife for a little over 5 months now, and it truly is a pleasure. Feels great in hand, I love the shorter handle, and the extra control that it offers. While you do have to be some what experienced with wet stones to give this knife I nice edge it does retain it beautifully for at least 2 weeks at a time. Can’t say enough about the quality kudos to Korin for producing this wonderful knife.
