    My wife really loves the tulipwood, but she's so hard on cooking knives that I can't convince her she needs a nice santoku. :(

    FWIW she's the daughter of a Japanese restauranteur/chef--and she says "thumbs up!"

    Thanks for the kind words!


    I made a santoku for my wife a while back...took her a few weeks to stop leaving it out wet, etc....but she did adjust...and now keeps it clean every time she uses it. Has developed a nice patina now and the best part is that it stays sharp! :D



    Tulipwood Santoku is still looking for a home....


    Thanks!

    Hi Daniel,

    Got the knife and let me tell you it's a beauty...the handle is like silk. I'm very impressed by the blade as well. As a Japanese sword fan of sorts I can appreciate the benefits of the convex grind. We haven't had a chance to use it yet (spaghetti for dinner last night) but my wife is looking forward to trying it out.

    Thanks again!
