Handcrafted in the world renowned Tuscan town of Scarperia, this Made in Italy santoku knife will be a beautiful addition for both home and professional use. Established in the 1500’s, Master Knifemakers of Coltelleria Saladini work today combining passion and tradition with continuous innovation and research to create this popular modern day knife. The graceful design of this santoku knife is combined with unsurpassed quality of materials resulting in an exceptionally attractive knife that meets the needs of today’s professional and amateur chefs. Unlike many other knife producers today, the artisans at Saladini use a high carbon stainless steel which undergoes a complicated and expensive process of compacting, forging and tempering, resulting in a blade, bolster and tang with excellent hardness and durability. The blade is inserted into the solid handle with a hidden tang, creating a neat aesthetic line which also provides superior resistance to external elements unlike riveted knives. The rich Italian olive wood handle is sculpted and ergonomically balanced for a perfect fit in the hand and provides a smooth natural cutting motion for slicing, chopping and dicing during your food preparation. This product is crafted to provide a lifetime of outstanding performance and is designed with an optimal level of sharpness and corrosion resistance. Saladini products are recognizable by the stamped hallmark engraved into the blade, a sign of authenticity which sets Saladini’s products apart. The santoku knife makes a beautiful addition to a chef’s collection while also bringing a touch of Italian lifestyle to the home. This knife is perfect as a sentimental gift for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays or other special occasions, a beautiful memento for those who have traveled to Italy or for those who simply enjoy the beauty of Italian design and the dedication to quality.
