Made In knows how to continually impress us. Since the beginning of this year alone, the editor-favorite brand released its very first Dutch oven (which we raved about after testing), an ingenious pasta set that includes a stockpot and pasta insert, and a new compact version of their always-sold-out saucier. And today, Made In launched yet another limited-edition knife to add to their already impressive roster of cool kitchen goodies.

As of today, Apr. 26 at 10 a.m. ET, the Ovangkol Santoku Knife is the latest Made In limited-edition blade that you need to get your hands on. It follows last month’s launch of the 6” chef’s knife, which was so popular that it sold out the same day it debuted. And because we already adore the Made In Santoku Knife (especially for chopping hard veggies with ease), we’re positive that this version is going to be more than worth the splurge. But be warned: Made In’s limited-edition releases tend to sell out pretty quickly — so snag yours now while you can.

There are a few things you need to know about this latest iteration of Made In’s award-winning santoku knife. For starters, just like the rest of their knives, this one is crafted in Thiers, France by a fifth-generation bladesmith. It’s full tang and fully forged, which means it’s made from a single rod of stainless steel that runs all the way from the point through the hilt. This high-quality construction ensures balance and durability as you chop, while the nitrogen-treated stainless steel will deliver sharp-as-can-be precision cuts. The blade is also fluted to prevent vegetables from sliding up the knife, instead letting them fall onto the cutting board where they belong.

Aside from the blade itself, the new knife features a handle made from extremely durable ovangkol wood, a material often used for guitars, violins, and cabinetry. Each knife features an engraved number, marking its number in the series of 3,000 made. That’s right, it’s not just an incredibly useful tool, it’s also a collector’s item.

Our editors have used the original Made In santoku knife for tough tasks like chopping sweet potatoes and halving spaghetti squashes, as well as delicately slicing onions and mincing fresh herbs. With its gorgeous design, we’re positive that this new edition will be an instant upgrade to anyone’s cooking routine — if you can add one to your cart before they sell out.
