Santoku - WIP


Recommended Posts

Just started on this knife for my mother. It is 1095 and this is the first grind. It is 5” handle and 7” blade. I am considering moving the handle up to allow for more clearance as I have seen this on some of the Santokus, but I prefer the handle to be aligned with the blade. If I do bend the handle, I would heat towards junction and move the entire handle up, maybe 1/4” to 3/8”. Since the end of the handle is already sweeping down, I may have to play with that a bit to fit this new angle. If you have opinions, let me know.
