The Santoku uses a traditional Japanese knife shape that has become the hottest thing in kitchen cutlery. The Santoku chef knife is a "Jack-of-all-trades" kitchen knife for both the home and professional kitchen. The dimple grinds on the Santoku chef knife make it easier to slice meats and vegetables paper thin without tearing them. They also keep food from sticking to the side of the blade. The Santoku is the ultimate balance of Eastern and Western knife design.
