San.. what? Santoku knife. A great, well balanced knife that everyone MUST have. It slices, dices AND minces. There are small indentations the length of the blade to create small air pockets when using the knife. This prevents sticking and reduces cutting friction. Making all your cutting tasks easier. If you want to get into the history of the Santoku, here is a link for more info:
This has definitely been the ‘it’ knife for the past few years. If you don’t have one, I highly recommend you invest in one. Every major brand has a santoku option. Short options (5″) to longer 8″ options. From J.A. Henckels to Hampton Forge to Chicago Cutlery. This list could seriously go on and on. Prices range from $6.99 – $99.99. The difference in price ranges depends on the type of steel used for the blade, the comfort of the handle and the warranty behind the knife. Basically, you get what you pay for. A $6.99 Santoku knife will do well initially but may end corroding or breaking over a shorter life span.
