Wide Profile Santoku (Curly Maple)
This small kitchen knife is made with 416 SS clad 1095 High Carbon steel that I forge together myself. The handle is made from Stabilized Curly Maple with has a chatoyance when moved in the light. This wood has been stabilized by K&G who are well known for quality stabilizing. Stabilizing is the process of taking natural wood and filling it with resin to make it a stronger, denser, and overall longer lasting material. The Blade is approximately 6" and the overall length is 10.5". This knife comes with a hand made leather cover of my own making to protect the blade when in storage. This knife is a great size for any kitchen cutting tasks but with the wider blade it gives a bit more clearance over the cutting board.
