Product Information‐ Collapse this Section
An alternative to the chef's knife, the Santoku knife is great for cutting, chopping and mincing vegetables. The blade has a straighter edge than a chef's knife and has a blunted sheeps foot-tip blade with a thinner spine. It can easily slice thin-boned and boneless meats, fish and vegetables.
Originating in Japan, Santoku means three virtues, the three types of food most commonly cut in the kitchen: vegetables, meat, and fish.
This Asian-type knife has a broad blade and especially sharp cutting edge for smooth and effective cutting.
All knife measurements are for the blade only, not the handle.
- Special three-ply blade construction made from corrosion-resistant 18/8 and Cromova 18 stainless steel
- Unique convex edge of the blade makes cuts smoother, requiring less energy
- Perfectly balanced and ergonomic handles designed in the traditional Japanese bushido way of the Samurai
- 12.5-degree blade edge is mirror-polished by hand for exceptional long-lasting endurance
- Unique thumb rest gives added comfort and control
- Each blade is individually hammered by hand and designed so that small hollows create air pockets between the blade so food elegantly falls away from the surface

Customer Reviews & Ratings
This is the best knife in our kitchen! Among a collection of great kitchen knives from other well known brands, it stands head and shoulders above. It is incredibly easy to use and dangerously (in a good way!) sharp.
I would recommend this product to a friend.
