Santoku translates to "Three Virtues" which refers to slicing, dicing and chopping... so pretty much anything you're going to do in the kitchen. We recommend these to home cooks who are looking for that one knife they can grab and do pretty much anything with.
These beauties come to us from Miki Hamono located in Miki City Japan. The area is well regarded for its knife making traditions and these knives don't disappoint. Razor sharp out of the box the VG-10 steel holds its edge for a very long time. These knives are very well balanced right at the bolster and are right down the middle in terms of their weight in comparison to others. Nice and thin behind the edge, you won't experience any wedging for quite some time after sharpening these knives.
