Old English steel

This Santoku was forged out of an old 1960 MG carspring. Springsteel is excellent for making knives. The handle is Wengé wood with mosaic pins. Again, one for foodies with style...

Total length:  24 cm
Blade length: 9.5 cm

In the forge

A great way to spend the day, forging Santoku cooking knives with Fransisco Maldonado Gatica!
Japanese Takefu Suminagashi steel with the inner core in "White steel " 'n' all.

Japanese white steel is one of the purest high carbon steels.
