While the santoku knife originated as the all-purpose kitchen knife in Japan, you'll learn to love the Shun Premier 7 in. Santoku Knife for all of your culinary cutting needs. The blade is carefully crafted from VG10 steel and clad with 16 layers of stainless Damascus on both sides formed by folding, welding, grinding, and then polishing the 32 layers. Then the knife is beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision. The striking hammered tsuchime finish helps reduce drag and quickly releases food from the blade. The bottom end cap features the graceful Shun-embossed logo which adds balance and beauty whether in use or at rest in the block. The naturally beautiful walnut pakkawood oblong handle nestles comfortably in the hand, so you can chop, slice, and dice the day away. The word santoku loosely translates to the three uses, a reference to the three cutting tasks this knife performs well: slicing, dicing, and mincing.
