Description

HAND MADE Whether julienning carrots, mincing onions, or handling tasks that are too large for a paring knife but too delicate for a chef’s knife, this perfectly balanced, razor-sharp and versatile santoku breezes through work like an extension of your own hand.

Designed by Bob Kramer, an ABS-certified Master Bladesmith, the Essential Collection features the quality, beauty and faultless performance characteristic of Kramer knives—all in a package that’s easily accessible to home cooks.

Influenced by traditional European designs, each knife in the Essential Collection has been optimized for kitchen use thanks to a wide blade for increased knuckle clearance, a rounded spine for comfort while using a pinch grip, and an ergonomic triple-riveted handle for secure, easy cutting. Revolutionary FC61 steel holds a screaming-sharp edge and is incredibly durable, while the brushed polymer handle, polished bolster and full-tang construction result in a perfectly balanced knife that’s a joy to use.

Each Essential Collection knife draws on the enormous wealth of knife-making knowledge of Seki City, Japan, and undergoes a rigorous 100-step, 42-day manufacturing process during which it passes through the hands of 45 expert artisans. As a finishing touch, each knife receives a central mosaic pin handcrafted in Bob Kramer’s personal studio. Built to withstand the pressures of everyday use in busy kitchens, this is one knife that will be with you for years to come.

We started our Kramer Essential knife collection with the 6" chefs knife. My wife and I both liked it so much that a week later I bought the 7" Santoku. This is now my wife's favorite knive. One of the best knives I have ever owned.

I'm looking at the Kramer Essential Santoku & Miyabi Artisan SG2, priced the same. I'm having a hard time deciding between the two, hoping you can pint out the differences between the two so I can make as informed decision as possible. Can someone help?
Thanks

Best Answer: I bought the Bob Kramer Essential Santoku a year ago. I like its wooden handle since it fits comfortably in my hand, has a good weight/feel as I cut vegetables, and is perfectly sharp. The shape of the handle does not slip in my hand - neither during cutting nor cleaning, which is important.
