18cm Santoku Knife

RF-1645

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 18cm 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.

High Quality German Steel Blades

Quadra blades are made from high-quality 1.4116 German Steel which is extremely hard and durable. The blades are exceptionally resistant to rust and corrosion, and more importantly, they can be sharpened easily and stay sharp.

Steel Finish Handles

The handles have a polished steel hollow finish and feature a modern, futuristic design. The word Quadra relates to the number four and it also means ‘square or rectangular borders’ which is reflected in the handle design.
