The new Bark River 2012 Santoku is larger than the Deluxe Santoku that we have done in the past. The blade on this model is just over 8 inches long and the height is over 2 inches high. We have upgraded the steel from our 12C27 to Crucibles Powder Metal S35VN Super Steel. The change in steel will give over twice the edge holding of the previous model. The longer cutting edge and full height convex grind will insure clean and consistent cuts when used in food prep.
The word “Santoku” actually means “Three Virtues” in Japanese. The knife was designed to work equally well for vegetable, meats And Fish. This knife easily meets that definition and will excel in any kitchen task where a larger kitchen knife is normally used. We have heat treated and triple tempered this run of knives to 60-61 Rockwell C. We are confident that you will like the usefulness and nimble handling qualities of the new Santoku regardless of your level of skill.
