Santoku • 180 mm • 1K6 • mono steel • Handle made of stainless hammered steel • for both left and right-handed use

Features of the Kamakura series

The surface of the handle is a copy of the Kamakura-bori (鎌倉彫) style. A traditional processing technique used on wood, characterized by small recesses in the surface, made with a gouge. By applying the Kamakura-bori style to the steel handle, it gives a perfect hand feeling to the user. Moreover, the handle is lightweight by making it hollow on the inside, so that the knife never feels really heavy, even if you are cutting for a long time. The bridge between handle and blade is low and comfortable, extremely comfortable and ideal for the pinch grip. 

Elwin de Veld about Daishin Ryujin

Shosaka Motomiya, the president of Ryujin, explained to us in detail how the name Ryujin came about. 'Ryu' means dragon and 'Jin' translates as God. Shosaku san, the founder of Daishin, really wanted to launch a knife brand from Tsubame city, where he was born and raised. In Tsubame there is a temple called: 'Echigo Ichinomiya Yahiko Shrine'. The legend honored here tells us that after great losses in battles, a sword was presented to Emperor Jinmu (the first emperor of Japan), with which the emperor defeated the crisis and many subsequent opponents. Thanks to this sword, many Tsubame crafts have emerged in the region, including knife makers. In addition, it is said about the emperor that Jinmu was a god who wore dragon scales on his skin, which would protect him. The sword is still the source for the knives that are still made with great dedication in the region today, according to President Honomiya.

It is the first time that I present a completely steel knife to you in our store and webshop. Of course I tested the knife extensively and I can only say, what a pleasure. The knife is easy to keep sharp, has a nice weight and the steel handle is very comfortable. Not a single moment has it become slippery. I might want to exchange the gyuto 210 mm that I currently use for a 240 mm, because you have so much control with the pinch grip!
