The Knife shown above has been sold. If you like the design, don’t worry! A similar knife can be hand-crafted upon request!
The bold profile of the Phoenix Santoku boasts an arced spine converging into a flatter, more traditional santoku edge. Echoing the shorter Japanese-style Deba knives, this design enables the excellent chopping of a santoku while still maintaining an effective point. The modified pistol grip design of the Phoenix Series handles have been meticulously designed to give you unparalleled power and control in the creation of any culinary masterpiece!
With a balance point just in front of the beautiful Desert Ironwood handle scales, this knife wants to go to work as soon as it hits the cutting board!
The beautiful ceramics photographed with this knife were hand-made by local Southern California artist Delphine. Check out more of her amazing work through her website at Humble Ceramics!

The Phoenix Series is the culmination of years of varying kitchen knife designs and gathering feedback from the people who actually use them. My time in retail sales of high end kitchen cutlery has given me a unique understanding from both professional and amateur chefs of what works and what does not work in a kitchen knife.
These knives have been meticulously designed to offer exceptional ergonomics providing you with the precision and control you would expect from a world class kitchen knife. All of the Phoenix Series knives are hand forged from either 5160 or 1084 high carbon steels.
A properly heat treated high carbon steel will out perform ANY stainless steel currently on the market. As with all high quality kitchen cutlery, these knives must be cared for. These are NOT dishwasher safe and should be washed by hand only.
