Santoku Knife 180mm (7") #881

| /

The Santoku is the most popular knife in the Japanese home and considered to be an all rounder in the kitchen. The meaning of Santoku is the “three virtues” in Japanese and is a reference to its multi purpose and versatility. It can be used to prepare fish, chicken and most fruits and vegetables but is too small for large food items like watermelons and bigger cuts of meat. The Santoku is great as an alternative if you have a larger chef’s knife as most Santokus come in at around 165mm to 180mm its easy to handle and has a snubbed nose to it.

After years of fine-tuning and consultation with professional chefs, Misono released the 440 series. The Misono 440 line is constructed out of molybdenum steel and a water resistant wooden handle. The amount of chromium is increased from 13% to 16% for the 440 line in order to achieve a longer edge retention than the Misono Molybdenum line. The curve of the water-resistant wood handle is designed to fit comfortably in the user’s hand, making it popular among those who prefer thinner handles. The brand’s famously thin and sharp knives are hand finished and inspected to ensure the highest quality product.
