The Japanese word, “Santoku” means “three uses” and refers to the knife’s multifunction ability, as a slicer, dicer and mincer. It combines the best of a chef’s knife and a cleaver wrapped in one; featuring premium materials, construction and design, giving you the flexibility you need in the kitchen. From the heat of professional restaurant kitchens to a simple meal for one, the Gladiator Series santoku knife works tirelessly beside you, complimenting your style, always dependable and forever brutally effective. It is your merciless gladiator in the unforgiving arena of professional and home kitchens.
The knife is as pleasing to hold as it is to look at, featuring a perfectly engineered balance with a satisfying heft and presence. Perfectly weighted to handle both thicker, heavy duty cuts and more delicate detail work. The hand polished bolster adds counter weight and offers finger protection, while the triple rivets (with signature Dalstrong center rivet) in the handle ensures the highest level of strength and robustness. Included is a water and stain resistant, BPA free protective Dalstrong PerfectFit sheath.
