Full Bolster

The full bolster reliably protects your fingers in everyday cooking and the balance makes agile and precision work easier.

Full Tang

As an extension of the blade, the tang gives the knife reliable stability. In addition, as a counterweight, it ensures the blade is balanced.

Hand Guard

The handle sits in the hand comfortably and is curved slightly downwards at the heel to avoid slipping. The robust handle shells are secured with stainless steel rivets and manufactured seamlessly.

What a cook’s knife is for European kitchens, the Santoku is for Japan and the whole of Asia. This blade is just right for preparing not only fine Asian but also Western cuisine. 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 creates pockets of air that prevent extra thin or soft slices from sticking to the blade.
