Description: South African knifemaker David Hoehler specializes in chef's knives. Given that he worked in some of the best kitchens in South Africa for nine years, it is no surprise that he brings a unique understanding the chef's primary tool.
Like a chef's knife, the santoku is a multipurpose knife used for just about every cutting job in the kitchen. The name means “three virtues.” Depending on who you ask, this refers either to the three types of foods it works especially well with — vegetables, proteins, and fruit, or for the three types of cuts at which it excels: slicing, dicing, and chopping. Slightly shorter than the standard chef's knife, a santoku is very easy to maneuver—even in a smaller kitchen. There's plenty belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which enhances the knife's versatility. Whether slicing, chopping, mincing, or dicing, this comfortable knife will do it all.
The 7 inch blade is made from high performing N690 stainless steel. N690 is made by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade is meticulously flat ground for precise slicing and has a razor sharp edge. A hand rubbed satin finish lends an heirloom quality to the knife.
The handle is formed from dyed and stabilized maple burl. Thin blue G-10 spacers set between the handle scales and full tang assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Two stainless hidden bolt rivets set the scales to the full tang. This elegant knife will hold up exceptionally well to the demands of either a home or commercial kitchen.
Exceptional work throughout! This is a knife you'll have a hard time putting down.
