The name Santoku, or 'Three Virtues' refers to the blades versatility - it's equally efficient at chopping, slicing and cutting. For tasks that require a lighter touch than the typical chefs knife, this blade may be your best bet.
Seki Majoruku's Imayo range consists of four knives designed with the modern home cook in mind. The high chromium content of the blade makes it resistant to corrosion, and the high carbon content ensures more effective edge holding abilities. The handle is made of reinforced wood which is water-resistant, however it's not a good idea to ever put your prized knives in the dishwasher: hand-wash with soapy water only.
