The extremely versatile Japanese Santoku knife offers the benefits of both a chef's knife and that of a vegetable cleaver.
A combination of style and practicality, the Santoku knife is a vital tool for a variety of cutting tasks. Create paper-thin slices of garlic and onions with ease as the hallowed edge pattern releases the thin slices from the blade. The blade is heat-treated for optimal blade sharpness, permitting you to slice, dice and mince foods with precision. Constructed from a single piece of forged high-carbon German steel, this knife resists rust and corrosion which allows the blade to stay sharper longer. Carefully engineered for the perfect weight balance, the fully forged tang is riveted to the polymer handle for added durability and control. The ergonomic POM plastic handle provides a safe, non-slip grip, and is dishwasher-safe for easy cleanup. Additionally, the grip is 6-spot advanced polished, allowing for an even more comfortable grip than the standard Santoku knife.
