Description: Journeyman Smith Jim Arbuckle resides in Yorktown, VA. He started making knives in 1979 and has been forging knives since 1996. Growing up in Washington State, he spent most weekends hunting and fishing and has a great understanding of what features make a knife perform well. If you want a knife that is as attractive as it is useful, and don't want the typical off-the shelf chef's knives, then this handmade santoku is one you will want to check out. This chef's knife will quickly become your go-to knife in the kitchen!
The santoku is the traditional Japanese chefs knife. This comfortable design is a fantastic multipurpose chopper. The Santoku style has quickly become the new favorite for chefs in the West. The 6-1/2 inch blade is easily controlled, while the tall blade gives plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. From chopping to slicing, this will be your go-to knife.
The blade is made from 154CM, high carbon stainless steel. It is hardened and triple tempered to Hrc 59-60, then hand rubbed to an heirloom quality satin finish. The spine is nicely rounded for a more comfortable grip. The distal tapered blade ensures perfect balance.
Natural olive wood scales are set on the full tang for strength and durability. The tang features modified bamboo filework filled with black resin. This allows the beauty of filework without the worry of food getting into the recesses. The handle is contoured to accommodate a comfortable pinch grip and will be a pleasure to use for hours.
Excellent work throughout!
