Natural, authentic and exotic, they don't come much better looking than this. With a touch of the international in its make up, the Tree Tiger traditional santoku is a beauty to behold ... and hold.
Slightly curved to accomodate a comfortable finger position, the rounded rectangular wooden handle provides a firm and inviting grip.
Striped like a tiger, its rings of oak, walnut, purple heart and blackwood have been stacked together to create a unique and smooth natural finish.
This knife is the Japanese equivalent of the Western French Chefs knife in the kitchen - in that it is the 'go to' knife for most chopping, slicing and dicing jobs in the kitchen.
It is a genuine little work horse - and its dimpled mill scale finished blade is wide enough for scooping up everything it cuts. There is no need to take the chopping board to the pot when this useful knife is around.
If you have never used one, you should. Every kitchen should have one.
The Tree Tiger Traditional Santoku
All handcrafted knives need to be cleaned and oiled after use to maintain the blade and handle in good condition.
