Chroma’s Santoku Knife Is as Versatile as it Is Lovely

As you might infer from its name, the Santoku knife originated in Japan. What distinguishes it from others is the shape of its blade. Its cutting edge is almost flatstraight (not curved) and its blunt tip approximates a 60-degree arc. Such tips are referred to as “sheepsfoot” shapes for obvious reasons. The word "Santoku" translates as “three virtues” or “three uses.” Some believe the knife’s 3 uses are slicing, dicing and mincing; whereas others believe its 3 uses are for meat, fish and vegetables. Either way, you get the idea. The Santoku is a true, general-purpose knife popular with both professional and novice chefs.

The Blade of This 7-1/4” General-Purpose Knife Is Japanese 301 Steel

Japanese steel makers have always been at the forefront of research into advancing the strength of steel and the sharpness of steel blades. That’s why Japanese knives are considered to be the world’s absolute best cutting tools. That’s also why the world’s best kitchen knives feature blades made of special steel known as Japanese 301 steel.
