Wusthof Aeon 7" Hollow Ground Santoku
The WÜSTHOF Aeon series is a very limited production line (only 1500 are being made) that you simply have to see to believe. The Aeon 7" Hollow Ground Santoku pairs materials both thousands of years old (yes, thousands) with the latest, most highly advanced DLC (Diamond-like-Carbon) technology, developed by space travel and Formula 1 racing engineers.
The handle is crafted from millennia-old bog oak (3,249 years old, to be exact), this ancient wood is dense, hard, and sustainable while also boasting a subtle and stunning, one-of-a-kind pattern. The oak originally grew and fell in Scandinavia and it truly tells a story as old as time, while still delivering a balanced full bolster and finger guard to ensure safety, control, and smooth movement. And you don't have to take our word for it- each numbered unit comes with its own certificate of authenticity, and is verified by 2 independent international carbon dating labs.
Wusthof's excellent X50 CrMoV 15 blade has the standard 58° Rockwell hardness, but when coated with this non-reflective DLC technology, the blade surface strength almost doubles to 104° Rockwell, adding both unparalleled strength and beauty. The dramatically increased surface hardness adds protection from scratches, corrosion, and high temperatures without making the blade brittle. The surface becomes so hard, smooth and slick that it exhibits the "lotus effect", where water quickly rolls off and away from the material. And that deep matte black sheen looks amazing.
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. Manufactured entirely in Solingen, Germany, the AEON is a tool to be cherished. AEON - made for eternity.
