13cm Santoku Knife

RF-1508

The Santoku Knife is a Japanese variant of the chef's knife. The Santoku, which translates to "three ways," is a flexible knife that can be used for slicing, dicing, and mincing, among other things. This 13cm Small Santoku Knife, which easily slices through vegetables, fruit, and meat, was originally crafted and invented for Japanese homemakers who wanted to recreate Western-style cuisine in their kitchen (not to be confused with the other Western-style Japanese knife - Gyoto).

Since Japanese chefs usually used forward and backward cutting strokes or a straight up and down slice, the Santoku knife's blade had no curve. This meant that the rocking motion on a cutting board could not be accomplished. The Santoku knife, which was relatively unknown ten years ago, has grown tremendously in popularity over the last few years.

Superior Quality Ice-Hardened Blades

Equilibrium blades are made from high quality German chromium-molybdenum-vanadium steel, which is ice-hardened for lasting sharpness and rust resistance.

Comfortable, Weighted Through-Tang Steel Construction

The handles are made from black POM material in a curved design which provides a perfect and comfortable grip, weighted by the through-tang steel construction. The highlight of the Equilibrium range is the perfect balance of the knives which sit comfortably in the hand, encouraging a professional 'rocking' cutting action.
