Description: If you're a great cook (or if you're married to one!) and would like to have a knife that is as attractive as it is useful but don't want the typical off-the shelf chef's knives, check out this handmade beauty by Jim Arbuckle. The santoku is the traditional Japanese chefs knife. This comfortable design is a fantastic multipurpose chopper. The Santoku style has quickly become the new favorite for chefs in the West.
This chef's knife features a deep choil, or cut-out, for the forefinger to rest in. Typical of Jim's work, this makes the knife easy to hold even with slippery hands. The blade is made from ATS-34, high carbon stainless steel made by Hitachi. It is hardened and double tempered to about Rc 58-59, then hand rubbed to an heirloom quality satin finish. The spine is slightly rounded for a comfortable grip. The tang is hand fileworked in a modified bamboo pattern between the grips. The bocote handle is carved for a secure grip. Exceptional work throughout!
