There are only 650 of these individually numbered Limited Release Santoku Knives in existence. Once they’re gone, they’re gone for good.

Santoku means “three virtues” in Japanese, though it’s unknown whether those virtues are “meat, fish, and vegetables,” “slicing, dicing, and chopping,” or “tip, edge, and heel.” Why can’t it be all of them? This knife is a multi-talented kitchen tool that fills a gap in any cutlery arsenal. Hand scalloped to reduce friction and stickage, crafted from premium X50CrMoV15 stainless steel, and fully forged just like our best-selling 8” Chef Knife, our Santoku Knife will bolster the virtuousness of your knife block.
How The Limited Release Works
Once they're gone, they're gone! Last year's Limited Release Chef Knife sold out in just a few hours, and this year we've brought it back via a Santoku with a stunning and sustainable handle. The deep greens are an ode to the handmade, hand-swirled, crafted-without-plastic handle, and the individual number engraving ensures your knife is one of a kind.

Why This Knife?
When we say our knives are full tang and fully forged, we mean it. This means all Made In knives are made from one solid piece of stainless steel — from the tip through the hilt — and cut through anything. All that our competitors' knives cut? Corners. By welding together two pieces of metal rather than using one intact piece, our competition can cheaply produce a knife that looks full tang and fully forged but doesn't act or age like it.

You asked for it, we made it. Our first-ever Santoku knife, the Limited Release Santoku Knife is a truly unique blade. Only 650 were made (each individually numbered), and once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. If you’re reading this right now and already intend to purchase this special edition knife, you should probably go ahead and buy it now before it’s too late…

If you’re still on the fence, maybe this will sway you: The stunning handle of the Limited Release Santoku Knife is sustainably made in Spain from a bio-resin that’s crafted free of plastics (it's made of upcycled sugarcane and corn starch). Furthermore, because each handle is handmade, no two share the same design.

This was the sharpest out of the box knife I have ever had. Seriously, be careful. Nice feel in hand. Nice quality.

Brain F.

Liked the first one I purchased so much that I bought a second.


The weight is perfect, it can cut through anything, and I love that it came with a band aid.

Sarah P.

I knew I loved this knife, but when my husband, who is a persnickety knife person, praised it, I knew it was great! It’s sharp and a good weight.
