KRVR Santoku 8in Chef's Knife

Notify me when this product is available:

This is a modern take on a classic Japanese knife. The santoku blade is made from VG-10 steel core clad with layers of stainless for durability (and it looks awesome). Our handles are a hybrid style that makes them extremely comfortable to use, no matter your knife grip preference. An ambidextrous recess at the bolster area improves pinch grip comfort and stability. The full handle also provides plenty of space for a standard grip.
