By Wusthof


The word Santoku means “three virtues”, referring to the three main tasks of this kitchen knife: slicing, dicing and mincing. The hollow edge prevents food from sticking to the blade.

What a Chef's knife is for European kitchens, the Santoku is for Japan and the whole of Asia: so versatile in shape, weight, and edge that it can be used for mincing and chopping herbs, vegetables and fruit as well as for preparing fish and meat. The sharp blade of a Santoku allows anything from regular to wafer-thin cuts - it is therefore now indispensable in kitchens all around the world.

The hollow edge contains evenly spaced vertical indentations that create small air pockets between the blade and the food. These small air pockets gently push food off the blade and reduce the friction and drag when slicing, as well as prevents food from sticking to the blade, allowing for paper-thin slicing.

Each knife in the Classic triple riveted series by Wusthof is forged in a 40-step process that begins with a single blank of high-carbon stainless steel to ensure outstanding strength. Each piece of Classic cutlery features a full tang that is triple-riveted to the handle, offering the user precision-level control. They also feature a full bolster and finger guard for optimal, comfortable use. Your children can probably inherit your Wüsthofs.

**Note**: The reason some variants have two product codes is because Wüsthof has redesigned their logo and packaging. The two codes denoted above for each variant are the new one and the old one, respectively. The Blade is the same, despite slight branding differences. You might receive either version, depending on our stock.

Best Knife I Own

Packaged well and delivered on time. A bit expensive but worth every penny. Great size and comes sharp out of the box. Easy to clean and very ergonomic making it easy to cut and maneuver to cut things like peppers. Would buy again in a heartbeat.
