This is a presentation Santoku with curly koa wood handles, and stand. This way it can stay on the
counter near the sink to be used immediately, and it looks fantastic! The
blade is VG-10 which is one of the best new steels from Japan. It is also
thicker and hand made by Master Smith Sajii of Japan. It is very sharp,
and a hard core with a damascus side for an interesting look. It will hold
an edge for a long time, and sharpens to a very fine edge. The knife sets in
the stand and pulls out from one side. We talked about incorporating the
waves into the stand as Greg is from Hawaii. The stand
base has a little grip to the counter with the cork bottom. The base, and handles are
Hawaiian Curly Koa wood from the islands. The wood
has plenty of grain with the handles having the "curliest" of the woods.
This is a fine family heirloom to hand down to the kids!
Care of Salter, and any fine cutler.
No dishwasher! Please hand wash, and dry immediately! If you use a
dishwasher it will warp out the wood so if you have a house keeper, or any
one who comes into the kitchen make sure they do not touch these knives!
If you have
guest, inspect the dishwasher before you run it. Gregg
also recommends an occasional application of "Town Talk" Fine Furniture Wax,
Salad Bowl Wax, or any fine wood wax to keep the finish looking like new. Be
sure to wash with soapy water prior to the first use. Lastly keep away from
children, and anything real hot like a stove, or barbeque!
Weight: 7 3/4 ounces
Some how during the
remodel in early 2012 this knife disappeared. We hope it turns up during
