The Shogun Series 7” santoku knife is a ruthless kitchen warrior, ready at your command to unleash all manner of slicing, dicing and mincing mayham. The Japanese word ‘santoku’, roughly translates to meaning ‘three virtues’, indicating the versatility of this style of knife and the type of cuts it excels at (slicing, dicing and mincing). The blade is typically shorter than a chef’s knife with noticeably different blade geometry. This includes a sheep’s foot rounded end and straighter edge, making this blade a push-cut master. The santoku knife is often claimed to be a fusion between a chef’s knife and a vegetable cleaver or nakiri, giving you the benefits of both. ‘Rockhollow’ divots create tiny air pockets to aid in food release and minimize friction. Idea for produce, and boneless meats and fish. Put one in your chef bag today!
