Designed to replicate the precision and angular forms of the F22 Raptor aircraft, the influence of this military hardware flows from blade to handle.
With a smooth octagonally shaped totara wooden handle and red kirinite bolster, the grip on this knife is exacting. Everything about it feels significant and substantial.
The blade, which is made from N690 Stainless Steel, has an enclosed tang to support its balance and weight and the handle is longer to support the balance of the wider than normal blade. Its milled and highly polished blade offer a sense of efficiency and the need to be taken seriously.
Make no mistake, this is a sharp knife and it will perform well in its role of slicing, dicing and mincing.
For something a bit different while still honouring traditional Japanese Santoku design, the Raptor is the new kid on the block of Willie's Santoku design collection.
The Raptor Angular Traditional Santoku
All handcrafted knives need to be cleaned and oiled after use to maintain the blade and handle in good condition.
