Something special in the realm of santoku, this wide blade Ginsan kitchen knife is an absolute joy to use. With high levels of fit, finish and sharpness, this knife is hand-crafted with high-end materials. Sitting much taller than other santoku, this design yields the chopping prowess of a nakiri, whilst maintaining a pointed tip for precision tasks and slight bottom curve for rock cutting. Hands down our favourite santoku.

* As our kitchen knives are hand-made (some with natural materials like timber), small variation to size and colour may occur.
* Non stainless steel kitchen and chef knives require a small amount of care to prevent surface rust. Even though this can easily be removed if it does occur, we recommend you hand wash and thoroughly dry after each use, do not use a dishwasher. For extended storage, coat in an oil like our Tsubaki.
Japanese Kitchen Knife | Santoku (Home Cook Knife)
Like it's larger cousin, the Gyuto, this is your go-to knife for any and all tasks within the kitchen. Generally Santoku knives are smaller in size than Gyuto, making them versatile in smaller home kitchens or for cooks with fledgling knife skills. Both styles of knife are multi-tasking machines that can be used for any and all cooking preparation tasks.
As is the case with most Japanese kitchen knives, the Santoku is thinner & lighter than other western chef knives, they are normally made from harder steel which can hold a sharper edge.
