Santoku literally translates as ‘three benefits’ – slicing, dicing and mincing. The breadth of blade is ideally suited for cutting against the knuckle with speed – this technique provides safe comfortable cutting action only when the fingertips are clawed well away from the edge with the blade resting on the knuckle. The gently curved profile and extra width of the Gold Kitano Santoku, makes this a fabulous decision for those wanting a blade capable of fulfilling the functions of both the Gyuto and the Nakiri whilst also giving exceptional comfort and being a little shorter and thus not so intimidating for those wanting to move on from short slim utility blades. This perfectly balanced knife will float through any task.
