Like the chefs knife, the santoku is an all-purpose, double-beveled knife. It works well on just about anything you need to cut in the kitchen, from fruits and vegetables to meats, poultry and fish. With its slightly shorter blade, downturned tip, and high handle position, the Wasabi Black Santoku is not only versatile, but can be less intimidating than a long, pointy chefs knife. Its exceptionally handy for cooks with smaller hands or who are working in a smaller kitchen. The Wasabi Black Santoku excels at push cuts due to its somewhat flatter edge, yet theres enough curve to enable efficient mincing cuts, too.
The Wasabi Black Santoku is part of Kais Wasabi Black series. The series features traditional Japanese single-bevel blade shapes as well as a selection of double-bevel Western-style blade shapes. Single-beveled blades excel when extremely precise cuts are neededfor example, when preparing sushi. Double-beveled blades offer ease of use and versatility. Wasabi Black brings you the best of both worlds. The blades are high-carbon stainless steel designed to take and hold a sharp edge, with a graze finish that gives them an attractive, brushed look. Paired with black polypropylene handles in a traditional Japanese style, Wasabi Black brings beauty and harmonious food preparation to any kitchen.
