    I've always looked at santoku as bull nosed short gyuto, rather than as a blade with a separate edge profile. More of a difference in the spine profile versus a lower tip etc.

    There are many opinions and the term is a little nebulous. The basic concept is a hybrid of nakiri and gyuto, so there are many ways that can manifest.

    This Tansu Santoku came pass my house for a couple of weeks. Mert did a good job on this little knife.

    I am happy you liked it Chanop , thank you
     
  11. Oh, I missed that thread somehow. Love the look of that knife. Thought I wouldn't call it Santoku ( to me santoku is something with very little belly, lots of height and bullnose tip).

    Much more functional tip than a santoku. Sweet looking knife.

  18. Hey guys... I know this thread is very old but I just wanted to drop in (sign up) and say thanks for all the comments and tips on this subject.

    I had a project where I broke the tang on a small kitchen knife and needed to do a repair. You can check out what I did here if you like: https://imgur.com/gallery/EfLF4

    It's not a pretty finish, but the knife is serviceable and I learned a heck of a lot doing it.

    Thanks again!!!

    I missed this thread too. I learned about stress risers the hard way too. My belt cut in on the tang on both sides just a tiny bit. I was able to snap it off with just my fingers. That was quite surprising and a good learning experience.
