Made from the heartwood of the Cocobolo tree, this handle is finely textured and hard wearing. And its exotic South American pizazz and appeal is only added to by the embellishment of three handmade mosaic pins.


Easy to hold and easy to use, this Modern Santoku is Willie's take on the Traditional Santoku. 


Its not an overly wide handle (spanning 12mm across the spine), so it would fit easily into most hands comfortably and due to the curved shape of this knife, your hands remain higher away from the cutting board while you are using it.


Designed with a 15 degree curve at the top of the cutting edge of the blade, this knife also facilitates a gentle and smooth rocking action to help with tasks such as mincing and dicing. 


Despite its exotic connections, this knife is a general allrounder - and can handle all manner of jobs, from slicing, dicing and mincing/chopping. From meats to vegetables, it is sharp and up for the task.


Dive into a big cutting job with this knife and test out its scooping abilities!


When cooking up a storm, it is always helpful to have a friendly South American companion by your side.
