Place of Origin Sakai Japan
Japanese Santoku Knife is the most popular middle-size multipurpose kitchen knife in Japan. Blade length usually between 15 and 18 cm. In Japanese, Santoku means “Three Virtues” and it is a grate knife for cutting, slicing, and chopping. Santoku knives were created after the end of World War II, during the Japanese economic miracle by mixing Japanese traditional Nakiri knives with Western classic Chef knives.

After use, wash it with a soft sponge, wipe the knife dry and store safely. Avoid cutting the bones, frozen foods, hard fruit pits.

Recommended cutting surface: wood, rubberized boards, and high-end composites, as well as quality plastics such as polyethylene, make acceptable cutting surfaces and will help protect and extend the life of the knife's edge. AVOID using glass, metal, countertops, and other rigid, unyielding surfaces.

We think that sharpening all quality Japanese knives on whetstones produces the finest results for your blades.
