Description: A santoku is the primary chef's knife used in a Japanese home. Many Western cooks today have added it to their kitchen favorites. A knife of many talents, a santoku easily handles all the basic kitchen cutting tasks. In fact, some people even prefer it to a European chef’s knife. This santoku is light, agile, and very easy to maneuver. There's just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which just adds to the santoku's versatility. This chef's knife is sure to be a favorite in your kitchen!
This santoku is the work of Washington native, Dale Miller. Miller's attention to detail shines through the elegant kitchen knife. The blade is formed from high performing AEB-L stainless steel. Many knifemakers and metallurgists feel that AEB-L, with its small crystalline size, tremendous edge stability and toughness, is among the best stainless steels used in knifemaking today. Dale brought the steel to 60-61 Rockwell, ensuring a keen, long lasting edge.
The contoured handle is formed from curly koa (Acacia koa) and set on a full tang. Burgundy G-10 liners add contrast and assist the knife to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. This resilient, stabilized wood holds up extremely well in the harsh environment of the kitchen. Brass pins and bolsters bring out warm tones in the natural wood. Like other kitchen knives, this knife should not be put in a dishwasher.
Exceptional work throughout.
