Santoku Chef's Knife (Spalted Maple, Lichen)

Santoku Chef's Knife (Spalted Maple, Lichen)


The Santoku chef's knife is forged from a used lawnmower blade. This chunk of steel has been given a second life, and a new chance as a slicing, dicing, and chopping tool in your personal or professional kitchen. You could even cut some grass with it - just watch out for rocks. The steel has been annealed, forged, shaped, hardened, and carefully tempered - giving this blade a hard edge with great flexibility. The blade has a forge-finish and has also been force etched to introduce a patina to the steel - which helps prevent further corrosion of the steel over time.

The handle is made form a piece of spalted maple wood and various types of lichen cast in a clear epoxy resin. The handle is glued and pinned through the steel tang of the knife. The handle has also been coated with CA glue.
