The K08 Santoku has a special place in Spyderco’s history, as Spyderco was the first company to introduce a commercial santoku into the US market. This unique Japanese kitchen knife design straddles the line between a traditional Asian cleaver and a Western chef’s knife and performs the tasks of both exceedingly well. Its 6.81" blade is made from premium MBS-26 stainless steel that is ground exceptionally thin and meticulously heat treated for optimal edge retention. The durable black polypropylene plastic handle is injection molded directly onto the tang of the blade and features a distinctive “stepped” texture pattern that provides amazing comfort and control during use.
If you’re a serious chef, you owe it to yourself to give the Santoku a try. Once you do, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without one.
