Description: Michael Rader, who was honored as a journeyman smith June 2006, is best known for creating dramatic swords and daggers with woodwork that is beyond compare. Recently, he put his attention to creating chef's knives. The results are exceptional.
The santoku is the traditional Japanese chef's knife. This comfortable design is a fantastic multipurpose chopper. The santoku has quickly become the new favorite for chefs in the West.
The large blade and bolster are formed from 52100 carbon steel. Many knifemakers and collectors feel that this steel is among the best steels currently used for knives due to its exceptional edge holding and sharpness. The bolster is integral -- a technique that, while common in production knives, is very rare in handmade knives due to the difficulty of implementation. Like his hunting knives, this santoku was pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly.
The handle is formed from maple burl with curly maple accents. Black fiber and copper spacers alternate. By incorporating black fiber spacers, this handle will more easily adjust to temperature and humidity changes over time. By using stabilized woods, Michael is able to combine the beauty of natural wood with durability. The knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand.
