Why Santoku knife

The Santoku knife is the best knife to use for cutting and chopping food. The marks on the side mean that the food comes off easily.

The Knife

The knife is designed to feel balanced in the hand, with the right weight, so that it can actually be moved without tiring. The knife's own weight helps to work through the raw material while the angle of the knife blade provides optimal cutting properties.

Knife blade

The knife blade is made of Japanese steel which is preferred by professional chefs and has a length of 18 cm. It has a hardness of HRC 60±2 and stays sharp for a very long time. The surface is made of 67 layers of damask steel. The core is made of stainless VG-10 steel, covered by steel layers on each side. The beautiful steel around the hard core makes the knife both extremely sharp and durable, while also being incredibly beautiful. The blade has a sharpening angle of 15° with a balancing point in the middle.

Handle in treated Pakkawood

The handle is made of treated black pack wood, which both gives a beautiful look and fits well in the hand whether you are right- or left-handed. The handle is pressure impregnated to resist the wood cracking in contact with water. It is designed to be used over time without becoming uncomfortable.
