Satake | Ame Knife Set, 3 Knives

See all Happy Work gifts


Satake Ame is a beautiful knife set guided by the principles of power, durability, balance, and tradition. The Japanese name Ame means rain, which has inspired the design of the blade. The so-called “rain pattern” on the blade is not just aesthetically pleasing; it also means that ingredients, such as potatoes, won’t stick to the blade during cutting.

The elegant set includes Petty, Santoku & Kiritsuke knives.

12 cm Petty, 18 cm Santoku & 23 cm Kiritsuke
Hand-forged blade made of 5-layer AUS10 steel
Blade hardness of 60–61 HRC
Handle made of rust-resistant stainless steel at both ends
Incredibly beautiful Vril* handle made from materials such as spruce, peach wood, camphor wood, and maple. (NOTE! All handles are entirely unique.)
Petty knives are small Japanese kitchen knives ideal for precise cutting tasks on the cutting board, ranging from 75 to 150 mm in size and profile.
Santoku is perhaps the Japanese knife model that has most firmly established its position outside Japan. Its shape varies greatly, but it often has a higher profile than Western chef’s knives (Gyutos) and a more rounded tip. It is very common for chefs to use their Santoku for almost all cooking tasks, making it suitable for cutting vegetables, roots, fish, poultry, and meat.

Kiritsuke is a beautiful knife with a long blade, allowing for long, continuous cuts. Use it to slice thin pieces of raw fish or delicately slice other ingredients. It is essential to keep these knives extremely sharp for clean and thin cutting.

Vril – or masur, as it is also called – is a formation in wood where fibers run in different directions rather than vertically. Vril/Masur wood is highly sought after because it is incredibly beautiful and harder than regular wood.
All handles are unique: the images provide examples of what they may look like.
