Brian Hanson Santoku 6" Custom Damascus - Walnut
A custom, one-of-a-kind damascus steel blade hand forged in Arlington, Washington by Brian Hanson. Brian is an ex-chef turned knifemaker, and you can really see his experience in the kitchen come through in his knifemaking, not just works of art, but blades you WANT to use. This knife is particularly light, weighing under 4 ounces! Regardless, it feels balanced and substantial in the hand, thanks to a slightly larger handle than the traditional Japanese style handles.
