Spring Santoku (Cherry Burl)
The Spring Santoku is forged from an old Ford leaf spring. 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. Yeah, it's that versatile.
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 a stabilized piece of Cherry Burl wood. The handle is glued and pinned through the steel tang of the knife. The handle is also protected with CA glue.
