For years our customers have asked us to make an elk antler handle on a chef knife. That time has finally come. The new JH Elk Antler Santoku is made with our signature S35VN powder metal steel and Jackson Hole harvested handle materials. Its hidden tang is secured with the same adhesive that holds fighter jets together. And the antler handle has been vacuum impregnated to secure its longevity.
We are extremely proud of this knife as it achieves a perfect harmony of the world's best cutlery steel with nature's raw beauty.
East meets New West - the best of both worlds.
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.
A revolution in blade design
The Teton Edge Santoku represents a revolution in the history of blade design. The "Edge" replaces the traditional santoku "dimples" with an etched semblance of the Teton Mountain range. As with the dimples, the etching helps the blade slice smoothly through food without sticking- but the Teton Edge does it even better. Traditional machine-grinding the dimples can disrupt and distort the precision of the steel's heat treatment. The proprietary process used to etch the "Edge" enhances the performance while optimizing the steel. The "Teton Edge" celebrates the spirit of Jackson Hole, New West Knifeworks home, both visually and functionally, redefining the cutting edge of peak performance.
S35VN: America's Best
Like cooking, making knives depends on using the best ingredients. The G-Fusion line features the highest performing knife steel on the market-- S35VN "Powder Metal" steel. This high carbon, alloyed steel has it all: elite sharpness, toughness, edge-holding, stain resistance and sharpenability. G-Fusion knives are made in the US with American steel and backed by a lifetime guarantee.
*Because of the uniqueness of each elk and their sheds, every antler handle will have some variance in color, texture and appearance.
