What is a Santoku knife?
It's basically the Japanese equivalent of the European chef's knife, used best with a slightly different cutting stroke (see comments below). Use this knife anywhere you'd use a medium sized purple chef's knife, slicing meat, preparing stir fry, and more.
It has a super sharp edge made of high-carbon Japanese stainless steel. The non-stick coating and ridges and holes combine to keep food from clinging to the blade as you go.
The word Santoku can basically be translated as " three virtues," which correspond to the knife's ability to handle multiple cutting tasks. We think this knife has a fourth virtue - it's purple!
Santoku blades use a " Sheep's foot" tip. This design gives you a more linear cutting edge with less " rocking" travel (compared to the Western Chef's knife). So you'll find a straight-down cutting motion ?with less back-and-forth rocking ? tends to be more effective with this knife.
