The 2 most dangerous parts of a knife are the pointed tip and heel, this santoku knife has had both of these rounded. Although still razor sharp, the removal of these elements make it much safer. These are intended for training knife skills to children, we recommend their use as a safety knife for camping, caravans and boats.

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.
