A santoku is a Japanese all-purpose kitchen knife. It can be used for just about every cutting job in the kitchen, just like a chef's knife. "Santoku" means “three virtues" and may refer to the three types of foods it works well with—vegetables, proteins, and fruit. This Shun Classic Hollow Ground Santoku offers a compact 4-inch blade, making it a perfect go-to knife when cutting medium-sized foods or for cooks who simply prefer the quick handling of a smaller kitchen knife. Hollow-ground indentations on the blade help reduce friction so the blade glides through whatever you are cutting more easily. 

  • A compact, do-it-all kitchen knife
  • Proprietary VG-MAX cutting core is wear and corrosion resistant, strong, and very fine-grained to enable a razor-sharp, long-lasting 16° edge each side
  • 34 layers of stainless Damascus cladding each side (68 total); support the core, add stain resistance, and help food release from the blade
  • D-shaped ebony-finished Pakkawood handles are comfortable for both left- and right-handed users; durable, beautiful, and won't harbor bacteria
  • Full composite tang for light weight and perfect balance
  • Handcrafted in Japan
