Every kitchen needs a Santoku knife. The comfort of this knife in your hand, the shape and precision sharpness of the blade makes chopping and slicing not only easy but precise for everyone. From delicately thin slices to quick and efficient chopping this knife does not disappoint. The shaping next to the cutting edge also keeps foods from sticking to the edge of the blade, increasing accuracy and ease of use. With the addition of the Asian Edge Knife Sharpener, this set will be used, enjoyed and appreciated.
