Santoku knives are suited to precision cutting where thin cuts are required. Cutting technique differs too with cutting done on the forward ‘push’ rather than the backward ‘pull’.
The perfect steel - The best knife blades are made from high chrome steel for sharpness and longevity, a high carbon level for maximum stainless quality, and a hardness (Rockwell 53-55) that allows the knife to survive in a hardworking kitchen. This Sheffield made knife is as sharp as the best combination of raw materials, skill and technology can make it.
About our wood - Our knife handles are made with English native hardwood (beech, ash, cherry and horse chestnut) from managed woodlands from a small area near Malton in North Yorkshire, and often from gale-damaged boughs. The timber is processed by a team that has worked these woods for over 20 years.
Hand wash your Forest and Forge knife in warm soapy water and wipe dry as soon as possible. Dishwashing should always be avoided, as should leaving wooden handled knives in water for any length of time.
