Let's talk Santoku (dont throw your chefs knives at me) - Page 2

CKTG does not have the small AS Santoku, and no Ginsanko3 at all.

But this guy doesn't want a Japanese knife... Wants a santoku, but not Japanese...

I had a Hiromoto G3 Santoku. Nimble as a feather. It was a present for a friend. Very nice steel.

That's exactly why I suggested the Lignum 3 by Robert Herder, Solingen.
More convexed ("ballig", in German): carbon Santoku by Burgvogel, Solingen, in their Natura series.
But the Hiromotos are terrific performers. One may always choose to have them sharpened extremely conservatively.

Ordo,
Sorry to mislead, but I'm not a guy I'm a woman, hence, the small santoku (probably).

Benuser,
Thanks for the rec. I will definitely check the Lignum out.

Thanks,
O.

Oh, obrusov, I had no idea you are a girl. In that case that Hiromoto with its short handle might suit you more than I could imagine.

However, there's another one I will draw your attention to. By no means the cheapest one, also a Japanese one, but very highly valued knives by many pros and amateurs.

It's a Hattori HD series 170 mm santoku. I bought this lot for my daughter. Really good material and a nice "sculpted" micarta grip.

It's the fourth one from the left (click on the image to enlarge);

 

 

I got them here; http://www.japanesechefsknife.com/HattoriForumHighEndChefsKnives.html#HattoriFH

Chris, in the text you refer to the HD series, where the photo and link make clear you meant the FH series.
