Chromax steel is a semi stainless alloy that possesses excellent properties for kitchen knives. It is made up of 5% chromium, 1% carbon, 0.9% manganese, 1.2% molybdenum, and 0.5% vanadium. As such, it is much less reactive than regular carbon steels but offers many of the sharpening and performance characteristics of some of the better varieties, like Blue #2. 

The Takamura brothers make their knives just down the street from the Takefu Knife Village in Echizen. This hot bed of knife makers boasts many famous names including Saji, Kurosaki, Kato, Ikeda and countless others. The tsuchime hammered pattern featured on these blades was actually first developed and patented by Takamura Cutlery 50 years ago. Since the expiration of the patent, it is now used by many knife makers. It certainly adds a whole lot of class to this blade while aiding with food release and ease of maintenance. 

This is a simplified version of the other Chromax Santoku we sell from Takamura, in that the tang is exposed and the handle is made from pakka wood and does not feature a bolster. This results in a knife with great performance and looks, at a super deal of a price. A perfect starter knife for budding chefs, home cooks, or those wishing to take a first dabble in the Japanese kitchen knife world.
