18cm Santoku Knife

RF-1745

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.

Stylish Hammered Blade Finish

The fully forged German steel blade offers perfect strength and balance, and the ice-hardened steel ensures long-lasting sharpness and rust resistance. The hammered effect prevents food from sticking to the blade.

Eco-Friendly Ash Wood handles

The handles are made of beautiful Ash Wood, adding a rustic, eco-friendly feel to the knife range. This type of wood is extremely hard and durable but also very comfortable to hold. The handles are finished with stainless steel rivets, for maximum control and support.
