    Which Bob Kramer Santoku ???
    There are 2 versions of the Bob Kramer 7 inch Santoku knife

    1. Bob Kramer 7 inch Carbon Steel Santoku by Zwilling JA Henckels made in Germany: This a great knife but be aware that it has a Carbon Steel Blade and requires maintenance to create a patina and prevent rust. The blade keeps a very sharp edge longer.

    2. Bob Kramer 7 inch Santoku knife by Shun made in Japan: This the knife I chose. I tried both at Sur La Table which is where I bought it. This Shun Bob Kramer knife is meticulously crafted by 150 expert artisans to achieve the precise heft, balance and shape of Bob Kramer's original design. The 3mm steel blade is composed of an SG2 core (64-66HRC) clad with true pattern-welded nickel and Damascus stainless steel for a beautiful, razor-sharp and lasting edge. The Handle is the same on both versions and is Gently rounded and richly grained red and black Pakkawood handle is crafted in Bob's signature contoured shape, and mirrors the curve of the palm for a wonderfully natural hand-feel. It was a financial stretch as I'm Irish and Swedish. This knife and the one above are worth there weight in gold. The Shun cost $40 more then the carbon steel but was well worth the cost to me. The Blade is a work of art and there is no patina maintenance required

    comparison between Bob Kramer Shun and Zwilling knives

    What are the differences between the Zwilling and Shun versions of Bob Kramer's Santoku knives?
    A shopper on Dec 8, 2011
    Best Answer: The biggest difference between these two knives is the steel that is used for each blade.

    The Bob Kramer Shun knife is consists of a 3mm steel blade that is composed of an SG2 core (64-66HRC) clad with true pattern-welded nickel and Damascus stainless steel for a beautiful, razor-sharp and lasting edge.

    The Bob Kramer Carbon Steel knife is formulated from a type of straight carbon steel called 52100 —the exact type used by Bob in his own shop —and heat-treated to a hardness of 61 Rockwell. That means this knife has the ability to take an extremely sharp edge, to hold that edge under all sorts of use and abuse, and remain easy to sharpen. The full tang of the blade is tapered to Bob’s precise specifications, and the blade is sharpened to 15° on each side of the 50/50 edge with the traditional three-step hand-honed edge.

    The Carbon Steel is susceptible to oxidation, which means it needs to be hand washed and completely dried after every use to avoid rust. It will also develop a discoloration after time. This is known as patina and is actually a desired effect for the carbon steel blade as it not only protects the blade, but it creates a one of a kind heirloon piece.
