Santoku literally translates as ‘three benefits’ – slicing, dicing and mincing. This is one of the most evenly balanced Santoku’s we have ever encountered. 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. This is for multi function use on raw flesh, makes this knife one of the best knives for the preparation of vegetables. For slicing, dicing, mincing and chopping can bring to even the most jaded of cooks.
Utility blades upto 6” are designed for any task requiring precision, comfortable peeling & paring or any function easier performed with a small blade more suited to the user or task. With its partner, the 180mm Santoku, this little knife is all that is required by even the most demanding cook looking to de-clutter their kitchen whilst still having ultimately functional tools which are aesthetically stunning as well as in keeping with the Japanese ethos of form in harmony with function.
