52 Contemporary Santoku Knives

Santoku knives are the triple threat of kitchen cutlery. Originating in Japan, Santoku means “three uses”, which is symbolic of this Japanese kitchen knives specialities: slicing, dicing and mincing. This all-purpose knife is characterized by its sheepsfoot-style blade, which provides a straighter cutting edge and less rocking ability than its traditional Western counterpart, the chef’s knife. You might recognize a Santoku knife set by its dimples or Asian-inspired flowing ink blade patterns — those aren’t just for looks. The indents between the food and the blade let in air and reduce friction and aid with separation. A contemporary Santoku knife is very well-balanced, and it will have you slicing, dicing and mincing to your heart’s content.
