Damascus Santoku in Black Palm

John's preferred Damascus steel pattern, the tidal wave, originates in the VG10 steel from Fukui Prefecture, Japan, a region renowned for centuries for crafting Japan's finest swords. The choice to pair this distinctive steel with a Santoku blade profile—a versatile shape trusted for all kinds of food preparation through the ages—feels instinctively right. This unique knife, featuring an anodized black bolster and a stabilized black palm wood handle, offers a grip as smooth as silk, merging traditional craftsmanship with modern design in a seamless blend.
