The Santoku is a cross between a Nakiri and Gyuto, originally intended for the home cook. It is a multipurpose knife that can be used for cutting meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.
This traditional Japanese santoku is used for chopping, slicing and mincing. This is one of the most popular household knives in Japan today. Made in Japan by Tsukiji Aritsugu, a knife manufacturer with 16th century roots in swordmaking. Wipe and dry during use and immediately after washing.
