DogHouse Forge - Santoku - Maple Burl with White Turquoise Tru-stone & Carbon Fiber
The Santoku Chef has taken America by storm, and is for many thier first taste of Japanese Cutlery. Interesting fact: the Santoku is actually a westernized version of the Banno Bunka Chef knife. Function and peformance are balanced all around. Used primarily for "Three virtues" tasks, mincing, Chopping and dicing. Its shape and profile are clean and timeless, and for many it's the go to knife in the kitchen.
AEB-L HC stainless steel allows DHF to design the blade with both high Rockwell hardness abilities and corrosion resistance. This gives the user high performance without the additional maintenance required from pure carbon steel. AEB-L is arguably the nicest culinary stainless steel available today. All AEB-L blades are professionally heat treated and cryo'd between temper cycles for maximum grain refinement and edge retention...that's a slick way of saying that they are super hard and hold a sharp edge for a long time.
