230mm San-Mai chef's knife

230mm San-Mai chef's knife

A chefs knife forged from a billet of san mai steel consisting of wrought iron cladding and a core steel of Japanese White #2. It has a lovely profile similar to a French chef's knife or the Japanese smith Masamoto. A 52mm heel height makes chopping veggies and meat easy. It has a pronounced distal taper with the blade getting thinner towards the tip.


The handle is Redwood burl with a ferrule of Linden wood, and is finished in a Japanese style 'D' shape that's comfortable in the hand.


This knife is carbon steel that can develop corrosion if not properly cared for. Please look at the Knife Care page for more information.
