A Santoku (Multi-purpose) Knife with a clear plastic blade cover in a fancy box.
Syosaku, Santoku style knife is one of my favorite knives to cut pretty much anything. However, I use mostly for meat and some vegetables. I enjoy using it at my restaurant kitchen as well as at home. Sheer simplicity, easy to sharpen due to its right ratio of carbon and steel, multiple layers of metal. The best part is its sharpness stays for a very long time, which is extremely key for both home and professional use. Finally, beaten metal gives it a classy appeal and of course the Mahogany handle is an absolute cherry on the cake.
Excellent knife. Joy to use.
