The Swiss Classic Santoku Knife is a Japanese style knife known for its versatility. Santoku translates to "three virtues" or "three uses" which refers to the three types of cuts this knife is made for: slicing, dicing, and mincing. It combines features of both a chef's knife and a cleaver. The wide blade is perfect for scooping sliced or chopped ingredients off the cutting board and transferring them into a pot or bowl. The triad of abilities this knife possesses makes it a must-have for every home chef.
Featuring a flat cutting edge and a rounded tip called a sheep's foot, the Swiss Classic Santoku's unique shape makes it a stand-out from other kitchen knives. The flat edge doesn't rock on the cutting surface, which distinguishes it from a chef's knife, and provides a highly efficient motion for slicing, dicing, and mincing. The Granton blade, also referred to as a hollow or fluted edge, features hollowed-out grooves or dimples on both sides on the blade. Depending on what is being cut, these grooves will fill with juices or create pockets of air, which prevents food from sticking to the blade and creates less friction to allow for easier motion when chopping.
Even with the grooves, these are still straight-edge knives and can be honed with a sharpening steel, so they can remain razor sharp at all times. The tapered knife edge is ground in two directions to hold a sharp edge longer, and can easily be brought back to its original sharpness.
