Shun Classic Hollow-Edge Santoku, 7"
Details Santoku means “three virtues” in Japanese, and this knife gets its name for the three strengths it demonstrates in the kitchen: cutting vegetables, thin-boned meats, and fish.Many cooks reach for their santoku at least as often as their chef’s knife.This santoku’s slightly curved blade enables you to employ a rocking motion while cutting.A thinner blade makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European–style knives.Plus, oval indentions on the sides of blade reduce friction, ensuring clean, uniform cuts with minimal sticking.Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary design features a beautiful Damascus-clad blade and D-shaped ebony pakkawood handle.Behind the knife’s beauty is function: a razor-sharp blade offering precision performance.Shun Classic knives feature a core of proprietary VG-MAX super steel clad on both sides with 34 layers of Damascus stainless steel.The woodgrain pattern of the steel allows the blade to slide easily through food.The result is a knife that’s sharp, durable and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens.Free sharpening on all Shun cutlery for as long as you own it.Click for details
