Blade & Handle

Since 1957, the Caddie series by Hokiyama has been an affordable, standard and basic knife perfect for home use. It was named after golf caddies in hopes that it would offer reliable support in the kitchen.
AUS-8 stainless steel is used for all Caddy - Classic series. With the addition of Molybdenum and Vanadium, the alloyed steel is capable of reaching 60 HRc while maintaining a very stable structure and good abrasion resistance, meaning edge will last longer than many comparable knives.

Santoku Knife

Santoku in Japanese transliterates as "three virtues" so they are otherwise known as "three purpose" knives. The three purposes which a Santoku is meant to fulfill is cutting meat, vegetables and fish. Its diminutive size and unique shape have made it very popular at home not only in Japan but in the United States as well as more and more home cooks are finding its versatility appealing without committing to a larger or more specialized knife.
