Kanetsune KC950 series Santoku Knife with a 165mm blade.
This is a good entry level Japanese knife series without any worry about the carbon blades. The steel is called DSR 1K6 from the Daido Steel Company, it is a shiny high carbon stainless steel. The hammer finish (Tsuchime) helps that food is not sticking to the blade. The handles are made out of red plywood with a hygienic plastic bolster.
Nice design, low weight and low maintenance and it comes in a white box.
Made in Seki, Japan!
