Carbon Steel Damascus Santoku Kit
Made in Japan, traditional Santoku blade in Carbon Steel Damascus in a kit with handle materials.
This kit can be completed with only hand tools such as a drill, files and sand paper as well as epoxy glue and some clamps and tape.
The kit consists of:
- Carbon steel damascus chef blade
- Handle block in your choice of material
- Vulcanised spacer material
- Optional: metal bolster (or make one from the block of wood)
- Optional: metal spacer plates to further customise the handle
The blade is Chisel-ground, meaning one side is ground to a bevel and the other side is flat.
The blade length is about 165 mm, the blade is 3 mm thick at the back and 47 mm high. Total length including tang is 245 mm. The blade is in Shirogami Hagane carbon damascus steel and is like traditional Japanese blades heat trated to a hard and brittle edge. These need to be cared for and used gently, bending or chopping with these will result in breakage.
Traditionally these have horn or wooden bolster but if wanting a metal one, the R35 will fit with some filing.
