The santoku is the traditional Japanese chefs knife. This comfortable design is a fantastic multipurpose chopper. This style has quickly become the new favorite for chefs in the West. Whether slicing tomatoes, chopping onions, or mincing herbs, this is sure to become your goto knife.
The 6-1/2 inch blade is formed from high performing Nitro-V stainless steel, hardened to 60 Hrc by Peters' Heat Treating. Nitro-V is a martensitic stainless steel with a chromium-based composition created by the New Jersey Steel Baron company. Meant to replicate AEB-L, nitrogen and vanadium have been added to the composition to improve edge performance. The resulting blade has an extremely keen, long-lasting edge. Both the blade and tang are distal tapered, ensuring a perfect balance. The spine is nicely rounded so it is extremely comfortable even when used for many hours at a time.
Black/grey G-10 handle scales are nicely contoured for a secure, comfortable grip. This knife is perfect for either a pinch grip or held back further on the handle. The G10 handle will hold up well to the heavy demands of either a home or professional kitchen.
Exceptional work throughout!
