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 relatively straight profile and extra width, apart from multi function use on raw flesh, makes this a great choice as the primary blade for those who prepare mostly vegetables. This perfectly balanced knife will float through any task. Particularly well suited to a more horizontal or slicing action to cut as opposed the more classic French techique of roll cutting on a board. The Aogami Santoku is particularly evenly balanced and is widely deemed to be one of the most comfortable general purpose blades in its price range and beyond.
