Wusthof 7-in. Gourmet Hollow Edge Santoku Knife
If you had to pick one knife to take with you to a desert island, we could make a very good case for this beautiful Wusthof 7-in. Gourmet Hollow Edge Santoku Knife. The Japanese version of a Western-style chef's knife, the Wusthof Santoku offers all the multipurpose power of a typical utility knife — in fact, the word "Santoku" translates as "three uses" or "three virtues" and refers to the knife's ability to slice, dice and mince all with equally impressive skill — with a few notable differences. The blade of the Wusthof Santoku Knife is slighter shorter, thinner and noticeably lighter than its Western counterpart, lending the knife an remarkable amount of agility and balance. This thinner-style blade, laser cut from strong, durable German steel, allows the user to cut even the most delicate items into beautiful, paper-thin slices. When you're deep into kitchen prep and loath to miss a step, this knife's unique scalloped edge helps prevent food like cheese, meat, and smoked salmon from clinging to the blade and slowing you down. Created to be thinner, faster and to hold a razor sharp edge, the Wusthof Gourmet Hollow Edge Santoku Knife will hope you showcase the knife skills you never even knew you had. Best Used For: The Wusthof Hollow Edge Santoku Knife is a fantastic multipurpose kitchen tool, great for most everyday slicing and dicing tasks, but its thin blade and hollow edge make it especially handy for achieving paper-thin pieces of fish for sushi and sashimi, meat for stir-fry or Carpaccio, vegetables and herbs for garnishes and slices of hard cheese and cured meats.
