Starter Set: American made, samurai style.
The "Teton Samurai" starter set features two very popular and effective Japanese inspired blade shapes - the Santoku and the Petty. This is a great choice for those looking to cover all the basics-- a full size knife for heavy cutting board duties and something agile and light for precision work. From small home butchering projects to juilenne-cut carrots, this combo covers it all. Backed by our Lifetime Guarantee, these American-Made chef knives turn prep work into performance art.
The 7" Teton-Edge Santoku
This Japanese style blade takes its name from the "three virtues" of slicing, dicing and mincing. An all purpose chef knife, the santoku features a generous width for easy scooping while the moderate length and ergonomic design make it extremely agile on the cutting board.
The 6" Petty Knife
The ultimate kitchen utility knife. This classic Japanese blade shape works great as a peeling, paring, boning and carving knife for vegetables, fruits, herbs and other delicate work while also taking on some of the slicing and dicing jobs of a large chef knife when you don't want to switch back and forth. This popular knife was described by Bon Appetit as "the perfect balance of power and grace."
**Please note: this is a natural material and each handle will have unique grain patterns**
To care for this material, we recommend avoiding harsh soaps or solvents on the handle (a little dish soap now and then is fine). The deep colors and rich shine quickly come back to life with a bit of mineral oil applied with a rag. No lacquer or sealant is applied to the ironwood, so it will readily absorb the oil and look shiny and new all over again.
