The Santoku knife is styled after the Japanese Cook's Knife and is just right for preparing not only fine Asian but also Western cuisine.
This traditional Asian knife can be used for a variety of recipes, just like the cooking knife. Its strengths, however, are in chopping and cutting fish, meats, and vegetables.
The new Epicure range combines the lightness of a Japanese knife and the quality and safety of a German knife. This means Epicure embodies a new type of knife – one that fulfils all cooking styles and sets new standards in function and performance. The natural fibre and resin handle combines the comfortable feel of wood with the robustness and hygienic properties of plastic. The shape is wide on the front and tapered on the back and features a profile adapted to the natural movement of the hand. This results in an ideal grip position. Balance meets sustainability meets precision.
Made in Germany
Wüsthof knives, scissors and kitchen tools have been made in Solingen, Germany, by the family-owned operation since 1814. The company regularly wins international awards and are given top ratings by reviews and publications. Wüsthof knives are used by national culinary teams, and famous chefs worldwide, including Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver and James Martin.
Although some Wüsthof products are dishwasher safe, we do not recommend that your knives and scissors be put in the dishwasher. Blades can knock together, damaging them, and if not washed soon after use, corrosive food particles can damage the blade. Rather wash your knives after each use with warm water and a little detergent, rinse carefully and dry with a towel.
All knives require regular sharpening. Wüsthof manufactures sharpening options that suit all of their knives, including whetstones, honing steels and pull-through sharpeners. See the sharpening range here.
Wüsthof products come with a lifetime warranty, and will be repaired or replaced if there are any defects in workmanship or materials.
