The Sakura Santoku knife from Viper is a modern interpretation on a classic kitchen knife, designed by Jens Anso and Jesper Voxnaes. These have been cryogenically heat treated to maintain a long lasting edge and are supplemented by beautiful wood handles which add character to an already classy design.

The Blade: Made from Buderus Nitro B, a nitrogen stainless steel which has been both vacuum and cryogenically treated to ensure a pure, long lasting edge. All Sakura knives are heat treated to a hardness between 58-59HRC. This santoku knife has a fairly wide flat grind with a satin finish making it the perfect choice for most medium to large sized kitchen tasks.

The Handle: Olive wood scales were chosen and have been stabilized to prevent cracking or warping over time. Viper went with a full tang construction on the Sakura series with the scales being attached via customized stainless screws.
