Simple, yet elegant in design, our Zen Series knives are up to any challenge put to them in the kitchen. The Ronin Blades “Santoku” knife is our best seller, and is the workhorse of the home kitchen, replacing the standard chef knife. The santoku means the 3 virtues, slicing/dicing/chopping, it does it all. A must have for any serious cook. All of our knives have a unique grind design along the spine of the blade that has become one of our signature elements to these beautiful knives.
Each knife is handmade from high carbon 52100 steel, heat treated and tempered to a 60 Rockwell hardness. We patina/oxidize each blade in a black finish to reduce corrosion and food staining. All our knives have a 18 degree flat grind. Handle materials are Diamondply and are available in many color choices. Picture is “Red/Black”.
“Carbon Steel is reactive to acidic foods and moisture. Cleaning and oiling the blade regularly is required to avoid rust”
