Ready Steady Cook

Two knives went out today to begin their new lives in two busy commercial kitchens

This one is a santoku from my Seiyo range. Knives in this range have a full tang blade but Japanese style blade. 'Seiyo' means East-West fusion.

This particular knife is made in a stainless blade steel that takes a superb edge but is tough enough to take the punishment of a commercial western kitchen. The handle is of yew and there is a matching saya (wooden sheath). The knife handle is fully stabilised and fixed with my unique 'hallmark' mosaic pins. The African Blackwood peg keeps the knife secure in the saya.

 

240mm gyuto from my Seiyo range in the same stainless knife steel with a Pink Ivory handle. Be not outraged, dear reader, no paciderms were harmed in the making of this knife; Pink Ivory is a very hard wood from South Africa that used to be reserved for use by Zulu royalty alone, such are its exquisite properties of strength and beauty.
