Santoku Series [Multi-Purpose]

The Santoku, which translates in to English as either “three-purpose" or “three virtues”, gained this name because it is well suited to cutting meat, fish, and vegetables. Santoku knives are often recommended as a multi-purpose kitchen knife for home cooks, and it is more commonly found in Japanese households than Gyuto knives.

The Santoku generally has a slightly taller blade than a similarly sized Gyuto or Petty knife. This provides a little more clearance for the knuckles of your knife hand when cutting directly above a cutting board, and also provides a good surface for the knuckles of your free hand to guide the blade during ‘tap chopping’, ‘push cutting' and ‘pull cutting'. However, it also makes the Santoku slightly less agile than narrower knives. A distinct characteristic of the Santoku is the curved Kamagata (Literally, “sickle-shaped”) tip, which forms a wider angle than the tip of a Gyuto or Petty knife. Relatively speaking, this results in a tip which is slightly less prone to breaking, but is also less nimble and precise. The Santoku can also cut and slice very efficiently with the blade edge kept parallel with to the cutting board, especially if the downward cutting motion is accompanied by either a small push or pull movement, which helps to initiate the cut.

The knife has a good balance and weight and it fits my hand perfectly. The details on the Damascus patterned blade is very beautiful and is such an attention grabber when my guests see me using my knife.

I was shopping for a new yanagi .I’ve shopped with musashihamono for many years now, so I knew I could trust whatever they put their name on. It is an absolute bargain at the current price. Incredibly light with a beautiful polished blade.Amazing for slicing fruit. Highly recommended!
