This Santoku knife from the Wusthof Gourmet collection performs the three essential cutting tasks a Santoku is named for: slicing, dicing, and mincing. The blade of a Santoku is thinner than the blade of a chef's knife. The blade edge is also sharpened at a more acute angle than Western-style blades. The hollow-ground indentations create air pockets to push food away from the blade as you work, making this knife ideal for slicing food that tends to stick to knife blades.
The Wusthof Gourmet collection features stamped blades precisely cut with state-of-the-art laser technology for quality cutlery at a great value. The blade is laser-cut and stamped from X50CrMoV15 steel, which is a high-carbon stainless steel that includes vanadium for durability and wear resistance, and molybdenum for hardness and corrosion resistance. The triple-riveted knife handle is made from a highly durable synthetic that resists fading and discoloration.
