ELEGANCE: Santoku 7" with Air Pockets [Elegance]
This 7 inch Santoku Knife, also known as a Japanese cleaver with Air Pockets, is used to chop vegetables or meat and to sever joints. A steel billet is heated to 2,200 degrees,
hammered into shape, hardened again by heating to 1,900 degrees,
quenched, tempered, hand ground, and a handle is attached. It is then
polished and honed to a fine edge resulting in the finest knife
available. The square bolster gives stamina to the handle. This Elegance brand of Sabatier (Theirs, France) gives you the beauty of wood and the longevity of plastic.
