Santoku knives are probably the best known Japanese knives to appear in a European kitchen. Due to its versatility, the santoku knife is popular for a range of kitchen tasks, and indeed its name 'santoku' means 'three virtues', relating to three everyday techniques; slicing, mincing and dicing.
A good quality, sharp knife, the santoku knife is designed to undertake many kitchen prep tasks. With an extremely sharp edge a santoku knife blade is thicker at the handle and finer at the tip, and makes light work of both cutting through a tough root vegetable or finely slicing a herb. The scalloped blade on a santoku knife creates air pockets which allow vegetables to slide off the knife, enabling you to work faster.
