Santoku Chef - Blade Kit (w/bolsters and hardware)
The DKC-H Santoku Chef Knife model is a high quality 33-layer hammered stainless damascus kitchen knife that is designed for stand-alone use, or as an addition to our matching set. This knife, properly built, will yield one of the best looking Chef knives on the market today, a definite rival for custom knife quality design.
The outer layers on this model are made from SUS-410 and SUS-430 stainless steel over an AUS-8 stainless steel core. The finish is hand-hammered, creating a stunning high-end look and finish. This combination makes for an incredibly durable, heirloom quality kitchen piece.
This kit comes with all stainless components; featuring dual front bolsters, matching assembly pins and a beautiful designer gift box. Additionally, pre-milled handles are available for this model. Note: from March 2019 we no longer get these with handle rivets. Use 1/8" pin stock or 3 mm mosaic pins front and back. The centre handle hole is 5.7 mm in diameter.
The blade comes in a well-presenting gift box, and is Made in Japan.

The blade lived up to most of my expectations, there was a very small amount of pitting at the tip on the cutting edge which should come out with some careful sharpening.
Otherwise a good blade
