18cm Santoku Knife

RF-6183P

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.

This knife range features high-quality Stainless Steel blades with a stylish black oxidized coating to reduce cutting friction and prevent food from sticking to the knife. The Forester knife range is also available in a ‘Safe-D’ range with round blade tips, to promote safety in the kitchen.
