de Buyer has created the FIBRE KARBON 1 collection to satisfy the most demanding Chefs. The high tech handle, compression-moulded in France with multiple layers of carbon fiber, is light and extremely strong, making it perfectly balanced and pleasant to hold. The one-piece forged structure and blade, made of the very strong German X50CrMoV15 stainless steel, has been hardened and forged by French master cutlers and sharpened using the Japanese cutlery arts. The perfect meeting of the two worlds that set the standards in cutlery.
Model: "Santoku" literally means"three virtues" referring to the tasks that are commonly performed in the kitchen, namely: slicing, dicing, and mincing of meat and vegatables. The scalloped blade significantly prevents food from sticking to it during use.
