Description: Hattori Chef's knives are the height of perfection. They rival the attention to detail paid by the most attentive craftsman.
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.
The blade and tang are both distal tapered for a superior sense of balance. The black linen micarta holds up extremely well to the demanding environment of a professional chef's kitchen. The blade, with its intricate, high contrast Damascus sides is produced to absolute perfection. The center is created from Cowry X steel, one of the best steels anywhere and is hardened to Rc63-65 (extremely hard!). The softer Damascus steel sides are both visually stunning and supportive of the ultra-hard blade. The result is an extremely long-lasting razor-sharp edge.
