(3 customer reviews)



RYUTOKU knives are manufactured by Fuji Cutlery Co., Ltd. The sister company of Tojiro applies advanced construction techniques and modern materials, combined with high quality Japanese quality control to produce great knives suitable for chefs, home cooks and professionals at a great price.



This is also a multi-purpose knife, but with a slight vegetable bias. Santoku means ‘Three Virtues’ or ‘To solve Three Problems’. The virtues or problems are slicing, dicing and mincing. Santoku is usually found in 160mm – 190mm lengths. These are more and more popular in Western kitchens due to the unique shape and smaller easy to handle size.

Care Instructions:

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
  • Never twist, cleave or prise the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.

  1. Niekie van der Merwe

    I bought this knife a few days ago, and I am very happy with it. It is well made, feels very nice in the hand, and is super sharp ! It cuts like a dream, and I think it is good value for the money !

  2. Ewan Greyvenstein

    Incredible value for money! For a softer steel knife, it holds an edge for a respectable period of time and the thin grind on this knife means that, even if the edge has dulled slightly, it’ll still have a good cutting action. You’d have to look far and wide for a better knife at this price point as it performs just as well as some other knives that I have at double the price.

    I like knives way too much. And also spend to much money on them….but its my money. LOL

    At 1st I thought this knife was a bit flimsy and told Neil im going to give it HELL to see what shes made of. And 3 months later the knife still holds up her end of the bargain.

    The handle seems light but it actually grew on me. Its also a nice thin blade which makes cutting a dream, sturdy though. Can also take some water because of the stainless. So a great knife for any newbie.

    Over all a great buy!
