With all this time on our hands, we put together some Santoku style chef knives to darn near give away! Times are tough, but luckily so are these full tang carbon steel chef knives with a gorgeous wood handle and polished steel bolster. Includes a leather sheath! These are the damascus version, so they are a bit more eye catching, but if you'd like a bit more stainless capability of a fully polished, check out the other listings for this same knife.
Damascus is 7x7 with 5 folds (448 layers)
Disclaimer: These are knives. They're sharp. Make sure what you're cutting is food, not fingers. Flashing a peace sign looks less nice with just one finger. You assume all responsibility for safe use upon receipt.
Damascus pattern and wood grain will vary. Like, a lot. It's a surprise every time!
1085 high carbon and Damascus Steel are great at holding an edge, but will rust and stain if not taken care of properly. Please clean and dry your blade after use, and apply a light coat of oil (gun oil, coconut oil, canola...almost any clear oil) in order to protect the blade and add longevity.

1085 high carbon and damascus steel will hold an edge very well, but they are not stainless steel. It may take on color with lots of use, and should be dried and oiled, if possible, to prevent rust. If you do get some rust, I prefer giving it a quick rub with a very fine (0000) steel wool and it usually easily takes care of it without scratching the metal.
You can use WD40 or rust remover, just be sure to clean the blade thoroughly before use, especially if using it for food.
The key is keeping it dry. Any moisture that sits on the metal will cause rust. That being said, I've had some in my drawer for years with no issues!
I wouldn't go chipping away at rocks, but they're pretty tough and should last you a long time!
Everything you see in the listings is in stock, but we may not have the quantity you need. Send me a note with any questions.
For large custom orders:
These are usually orders of 10+, and you can go full custom. We can do almost any amount given enough time.
You can engrave names or logos on the handles. You can replace my AIM logo with your own etched into the blade, or we can make a custom metal stamp of your logo for the leather sheaths.
Just remember, these are custom made and hand crafted, so we need months, not weeks. The more customized, the more time we need! They look ridiculously awesome, so bring it on!
Oh, you want to know more? Just send me a note to discuss your ideas!
-ENGRAVING goes on the wood handles. It's a laser engraver, so burning the image in. It can do fairly detailed images, even your drawn pictures and handwriting. Be creative! Engraving has a quick turn around.
-ETCHING goes on the metal. It looks great on the polished metal, but can be hard to see on the damascus. This needs to be less detailed. Think words, numbers, basic designs. WE ONLY DO THIS FOR LARGE ORDERS (10+). This takes time.
We will do full custom jobs for larger orders, including blade designs, handle materials, custom deep etched logos (instead of the AIM), custom leather stamps on the sheath, etc. Your gifts can be awesome!
I'm open to the discussion. Send me a note!

This knife is beautiful. It’s got some weight to it which makes it feel very nice. Came quickly and in perfect shape. Very happy!!

Perfect gift for a Dad who has everything! Even more gorgeous in person (can't say I am not tempted to keep it for myself).

There aren’t words to properly express how much I adore my new knife. My Santoku cuts through everything I throw at it with ease, and the beautiful Damascus it’s made of adds an extra layer of joy as I cook. Also? The instructions that came with made me laugh out loud. If you’re on the fence about getting one of these blades, trust me when I say it’s beyond worth it.
