This is a review of the "Tsuchime" box.

Bespoke Post always has a good presentation. I should mention there was packing paper so the knife wasn't rattling around in the Bespoke Post box.

Cuisine::pro Damashiro Santoku 6-1/2 inch Knife - Retail Price $120
These knives are sharp in more way than one. Subscribers have a choice between the Santoku, Cleaver, and Chef's knives. Or you can get all three for an additional $76 on top of the subscription cost. That's total of $130, which is great considering each knife retails for at least $120. I would have gladly paid for all three, but I already have nice chef's knife and I don't think I'd use the clever all that much. (Although I still want it.)
The santoku knife is similar to a chef’s knife with a more tapered edge and thinner blade to make it more efficient when it comes to slicing meats and cheeses and mincing veggies. The recesses situated above the blade edge helps to release thin slices and sticky food after slicing. Damashiro blades are made from specialist ice hardened Japanese steel which makes them super tough, resistant to shattering, and capable of being hones to a sharp resilient edge.
I've used this knife for a few meals now and have to say it will probably be my go-to moving forward. It's bigger than my chef's knife without being much heavier. The handle widens quite a bit from the blade to the base, which is different, but nice. And the biggest complaint I think I have for my chef's knife is that everything sticks to it as I cut. So the recesses in the santoku relieve some of that annoyance. Overall, a great addition to any kitchen.
I don't think I've ever been so quick to pick from Bespoke Post. I've been wanting to expand my kitchen tools and there is no more important tool in your kitchen than your main knife. The santoku can do everything my chef's knife does with a less headache. I like the all-silver look, the widening handle, and especially the recesses. I also like that there were three options for subscribers, not to mention the option to buy all three. I am beyond happy with my choice. I only which I could have gotten all of them. Bespoke, now please to a set of smaller knives to complete my set.
Let's Talk About Value
This items sells for $120. That is $66 saved with this subscription ($54 including shipping), which is more than twice the cost. That is crazy and may be the highest value I've seen from Bespoke Post yet. In this case, with the money I saved, I would seriously consider buying the other two knives. If not, that's plenty of dough to cook a nice meal.
