Santoku knives are the ‘go-to’ knives for many chef's as they are known as a general-purpose kitchen knife. Santoku translates to 'three uses' or 'three virtues' and are ideal for slicing, chopping, and dicing as they feature a straight edge with a narrow foot blade. They are highly appreciated by users doing a lot of precision work thanks to the light, narrow blade, which can make extra thin cuts. While they are greatly suited for all, because of their smaller size, they tend to heavily please the chefs with smaller hands.
