Kazan SLD Wa-Santoku 165mm (6.4")

+

We developed this new line of Kazan knives with a knifemaker in Niigata, Japan, using SLD steel. SLD steel was designed as a cutting steel and is known for its strength, toughness and excellent edge retention. Kazan SLD has an HRC of 60 - 62 and has the edge retention of a carbon steel knife as a stainless knife.

Kazan SLD features a beautiful cross hatch pattern and hand fitted walnut wa-handles and each knife is finished on a series of stones for maximum sharpness out of the box.

Kazan is made exclusively for Chubo.

Why we love them: Carbon steel performance in a stainless knife at a reasonable price.

 

Handle material Walnut
Blade length 165 mm (6.4")
Thickness at spine 2 mm
Thickness at tip 0.7 mm
Hardness (Rockwell scale) 60 to 62
Edge / Bevel Double (50/50)

  • Handwash in warm water and towel dry
  • Do not cut frozen foods
  • Use a sharpening stone, not a honing steel, to re-sharpen your Japanese chef knives
