In Japanese, Santoku means "three virtues" -- and these knives are renowned in culinary circles for their quality and versatility in cutting vegetables, fish, or meat. Created by Messermeister of Solingen, Germany, the special edge on the Santoku is straight, not serrated, and has scallops shaped out of the blade which prevent food from sticking. Its extra wide blade comes in 5" or 7" and is fully forged with the customary hand polished "elite" edge. The blade has a polished spine and a bolsterless edge. Seamless construction between the non-staining, high-carbon blade and the POM molded handle with a plate for personalization makes this knife a winner.
As Messermeister states, "Centuries of cutting edge excellence forged into all our products."
