Kai Benifuji is part of the Seki Magoroku range of knives. Many celebrated swords were born in Seki area and in the Kamakura era. The master craftsman Magoroku of Seki had the original technique producing beautiful swords which were high quality and had outstanding sharpness.
Made in Japan, these knives have a full tang which makes them robust and eases hand fatigue. Constructed from AUS-8A stainless steel, each blade is subjected to a 3 chamfering processes. This special grinding process reduces the friction against food and blade and gives you a knife with an extremely sharp cutting edge.
Like others in the Kai family, the handle is made from hard wearing PakkaWood® which enables durability and comfort, as well as making it an attractive looking knife to have in your collection.

The santoku granton is a Japanese all-purpose kitchen knife. Like a chefs knife, the santoku is used for just about every cutting job in the kitchen.
It works well with vegetables, proteins, and fruit and excels at three types of cuts; slicing, dicing, and chopping. Hollow-ground indentations on the blade help reduce friction so the blade glides through the food more easily.
