Santoku (Wood Lichen)

Santoku (Wood Lichen)


The Santoku chef's knife is forged from a used lawnmower blade. This chunk of high-carbon tool 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 from various types of lichen cast in resin and a slice of Brazilian walnut - which is a scrap piece of outdoor decking. The handle is glued and pinned through the steel tang of the knife. The handle has a Cyanoacrylate finish.

Specs: Overall Length: 11.0″ Blade Length: 7″ Thickness: roughly .175″ Steel: Full-tang, High Carbon, 55-57 HRC Finish: Forge finish/ force etched Blade Depth: roughly 2″ Grind: Compound flat with flat micro bevel Weight: 8.5 Ounces
