of professional quality knives, ideal for everyday kitchen use.
Typically, they range in sizes from 5″ to 7″ in blade lengths, but smaller ones are available. The Santoku knife has a unique styling somewhat like a narrow-bladed cleaver and is designed for a comfortable, well-balanced grip, while allowing for full blade use.
Santoku knives are best known for their sharp edges, either beveled or hollow ground, which enhances their cutting performance. Another feature is the ‘granton edge’ release pattern (scalloped) on the blades that not only adds style, but helps to release thin slices and sticky food after slicing.
