18cm Santoku KnifeRF-1845N
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 Black Hammered Blade Finish
The black oxidized coating and traditional hammered effect encourages food release and keeps the blade cleaner whilst in use. And the fully forged German steel blade offers perfect strength and balance, and the ice-hardened steel ensures long-lasting sharpness and rust resistance.
Comfortable Black ABS Handles
The stylish black ABS handles are hard-wearing and comfortable to use and the classic riveted styling binds the smoothly rounded handle with strength and stability. A forged bolster adds perfect balance and strength.
