When it comes to your kitchen tools, it's all about finding the ones that are right for you. If you prefer a smaller knife, may we suggest you try the Shun Kanso 5.5-in. Hollow Ground Santoku? In size, it's smaller than our full-sized santoku, but still offers all the performance you expect from a favorite kitchen tool. The hollow grinds on the blade help food release more quickly, making food preparation even easier. Cooks with smaller hands or who simply prefer a smaller knife may find that this 5.5-inch santoku becomes a top go-to knife.
