Japanese Kitchen Knife | Santoku (Home Cook Knife)

The Santoku, or home cook knife, is a versatile kitchen knife widely used throughout the world. It is one of the better starting points into Japanese knives.

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.
