The Santoku is an excellent all-around knife in the kitchen. This blade is forged, full-tang blade of 80CRV2 carbon steel. Like Grandma's butcher knife, carbon steel will darken and age with use, so I've taken the liberty of giving this blade a bit of a jump-start with a patina finish on the blade with the natural forge texture and hand-finished bevels below the surface.
Handle scales are the Cadillac of hardwoods, desert ironwood with stainless hardware.
Blade length 7", width, 2.1", overall 11.9"
