Old as earth. Beautiful as heaven. Sharp as hell. From Wusthof comes the stunning and exclusive limited-edition AEON collection, a series that has forged a connection between ancient history and the modern-day. Only 1,500 will be produced, so supplies are very limited.
Both a display of highly advanced modern techniques and a record of history, the AEON 7" Hollow Edge Santoku Knife will take center stage in any kitchen. The black blade is coated with a non-reflective DLC (Diamond-Like-Carbon), resulting in unparalleled strength and beauty. Used in the aviation, space travel, and race car industries, DLC almost doubles the surface strength of the blade from 58° to 104° Rockwell without making the knife brittle, providing protection from scratches, corrosion, and high temperatures, as well as giving a jaw-dropping look. The granton edge creates small air pockets while you slice, preventing food from stacking up on the blade. The curved cutting surface provides a greater "rock" than a typical Santoku.
The handle, crafted from millennia-old bog oak (no younger than 3,067 years, to be exact), is dense, hard, and sustainable while also boasting a subtle and stunning, one-of-a-kind pattern. This ancient handle truly tells a story as old as time, while still delivering a balanced feel to ensure safety, control, and smooth, sliding movement. AEON - made for eternity.
