Part of the Absolute ML Collection and combining the benefits of a chef's knife and cleaver, this 19cm Santoku is indispensable for chopping, slicing and dicing. The indentations along the blade reduce friction to produce clean cuts and minimize sticking. Manufactured by the renowned Felix Zepter company in Solingen, Germany, the blades are made of Japanese VG10 66-layer Damascus steel and are ice hardened, making the structure of the steel finer and more compact.
CUTTING EDGE QUALITY FROM FELIX® AND ZEPTER®
The exceedingly sharp and easy to maintain cutting edge of the Santoku Knife is complimented by a food-safe plastic PA6-Polyamide handle which is characterised by its absolute strength and toughness. Thanks to the extra safety feature - fine parallel-running grooves on the handle - the knife perfectly fits into the hand while cutting, giving you an amazing experience.
The ABSOLUTE ML Collection from Felix and Zepter brings cutting to another level of precision and sharpness. From blade and handle sandblasting, straightening, edge polishing, etching and ultra-sonic cleaning, handcrafting the world’s best carving knife requires a dedication to quality and tradition:
QUALITY: FELIX only uses premium, long-lasting materials such as high-alloyed X50 CrMoV15 Chromium Molybdenum Vanadium steel, Japanese VG10 multi-layer Damascus steel, or X65 CR13 razor blade steel. The microstructure of these steel grades, being homogenous and compact, guarantees flexibility, resistance to corrosion and edge retention of the blades. Being hand-made, the quality directly depends on the skill of our master craftsmen. Each knife goes through 45 different work stages, and every single step relies on centuries-old Solingen knowledge, precision work, good eye, care and love for detail. The final seal of quality lies in the functionality and design of our knives. The perfect handling and use of a knife depends on how it is shaped, how it fits in your hand, how it is balanced, how the power gets to the blade when cutting. From the first look and touch, Felix and Zepter knives have all these characteristics and distinguish themselves through their superior quality and beautiful design.
TRADITION: FELIX is a company with tradition, and one of the oldest knife manufacturers, producing cutlery since 1790. Karl Gustav Felix founded the company Gustav Felix Schneidwarenfabrik in 1843, establishing a two-centuries-long heritage of craftsmanship, manufacturing knives renowned for their extraordinary quality around the world. In 2012, ZEPTER International, a multi-brand global company that produces, sells and distributes exclusive, high-quality consumer goods around the world, purchased FELIX Solingen GMbH, thus securing its position as the market leader for the production of top quality knives. Zepter’s unique vision, superior quality and innovative products found a true match in the tradition and superior craftsmanship of Felix.
