Product Info

What a chef’s knife is for European kitchens, the Santoku is for Japan and the whole of Asia — so versatile in shape, weight and edge that it can be used for mincing and chopping herbs, vegetables and fruit as well as for preparing fish and meat. The sharp blade of a santoku allows anything from regular to wafer-thin cuts, making it indispensable in kitchens all around the world.

  • 17cm blade santoku knife
  • Ideal for mincing and chopping herbs, vegetables and fruit, and for preparing fish and meat
  • Ergonomic handle sits well in the hand and curves into the hand to prevent slipping
  • Robust handle shells are secured with traditional brass rivets
  • Handle is made of water-resistant smoked oak, which gives the knife an unmistakeable character with its individual grain and the authentic logo
  • Half bolster reliably protects the fingers in everyday cooking and the balance makes agile and precision work easier
  • As an extension of the blade, the full tang gives the forged knife a reliable stability
  • It also ensures good balance as a counterweight to the cutting blade
