(Please note that 25% VAT will be added for customers in the EU. Feel free to ask any questions about the knife, shipping, payment, etc.)

Santoku in differentially heat treated carbon steel. This is a very light knife and a great all round knife.
Not being stainless it is not for everyone as it requires more care in order to develop a nice patina, rather than to rust. If well maintained it is a great knife, with a steel that is easy to sharpen.


Weight: 130g

Length overall: 261mm

Balance point: 1cm in front of the bolster

Blade

The blade has a convex grind and is tapered from the bolster to the tip.

The spine and choil has been rounded to make the knife comfortable to use with a pinch grip.


Steel: 1095 high carbon steel

1095 has been a very popular high-carbon steel for knives for many years. It holds a great edge and is very easy to sharpen, but rusts easily if not cared for.

Heat treatment: The blade has been differentially heat treated inhouse in a PID controlled furnace at 815°C and quenched in fast specialty quenching oil. Finally it is tempered in a PID controlled oven to the final hardness.

The differential hardening of the blade is produced by covering part of the blade in clay during heat treat and results in a soft spine but a hard edge. What is called a hamon in Japanese sword making.

Hardness: 63 HRC

Height at heel: 46mm

Cutting edge length: 135mm

Thickness at

  • Spine at bolster: 2.7mm

  • Spine halfway: 2.2mm

  • 1 cm from the tip: 0.7mm

Handle

Material: Stabilised tea tree.  
Bolster and spacers: Ebonite bolster, brass handle pin, G10 and brass spacers.
Treatment: The handle treated with Danish Oil.
