Description: This exceptional chef's knife is the work of Argentinian knifemaker Pablo Untroib. Pablo lives in Buenos Aires. He specializes in knives for professional and amateur cooks as well as making outdoor knives.
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 blade is formed from O2 carbon steel. At Hrc 60, it will have a keen, long lasting edge. An elegant forced patina provides limited rust resistance and helps you get comfortable working with carbon steels. Because this knife is made from carbon steel, we recommend camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation. The blade has a perfect arc for a rocking chop.
South American Urunday (Astronium balansae) wood handle scales are set on the full tang for strength and durability. They are seated with three hidden bolt rivets. Urunday is a deciduous, flowering tree native to Argentina and Paraguay. It is very strong and dense, making it a nice choice for a hard use chef's knife. It has a nice light reddish-brown tone. The domed handle is nicely contoured so that it fits most hands.
The knife is accompanied by a veg tanned leather sheath hand built and hand tooled by Pancho Elizalde.
This is an exceptionally light, very well balanced chef's knife that can be used for hours without fatigue. It is a perfect choice for both home and commercial chefs.
