The blade for the manufacture of the Japanese knife Santoku-bocho Black from one of the most famous knife companies in the south of Japan - Fukamizu Hamono, belongs to the Santoku variety of one of the most revered Japanese knives in the kitchen. The blade length of the Santoku-bocho Black kitchen knife is 165 mm. Santoku-bocho have a double-sided sharpening and a thin blade - 2mm thick, which allows it to literally fall into the cut product. A knife from this blade adapts very well to all the main tasks of European cuisine, and if you want to have only one Japanese knife, then the most functional choice would be Santoku.
Blade Santoku-bocho Black is a three-layer laminate. Sharpened on a 600 grit stone. The Santoku-bocho Black blade has a gradual narrowing of the blade thickness, characteristic of a Japanese knife, both from the butt to the cutting edge and from the heel to the tip, forming even isosceles triangles in orthogonal sections. The central, extremely thin and strong layer, hardened to a hardness of 61-62 HRC, is made of Blue Paper Steel (Aogami), which has established itself as one of the best Japanese carbon blade steels. It is rusty, but the Japanese traditionally do not use chromium steels, since carbon steel gives a much more aggressive cut and is more resistant to dulling. The outer layers are made of softer steel.
To reduce the influence of external influences on the rusting parts of the blade, the shank of the Santoku-bocho Black blade is blackened. Also, the blade is treated with a waterproof varnish on top to eliminate the effect of corrosion during storage.
The finished Santoku-bocho Black Fukamizu knife should be rinsed with water and wiped dry after each use. It is better to store it on an open magnetic suspension. If you do not intend to use the knife for a long time, it is advisable to lubricate the rusting parts of the blade with oil. The Japanese use butt oil for this.
