Shun Premier 7" Santoku Knife - TDM0702
The Shun Premier Santoku is a beautiful, Asian-inspired Chef's knife. "Santoku"
means "Three Virtues" and the knife gets its name for the three strengths
it demonstrates in the kitchen: cutting vegetables, thin-boned meats, and fish.
Some chefs reach for their Santoku as readily as they reach for their chef's
knife. If that's the case for you, you'll really appreciate the Shun Premier
Santoku. Like the traditional Santoku, a downturned blade tip and a slightly
curved blade belly characterizes the Shun Classic Santoku. The slight belly
curve enables the cook to rock the blade slightly and makes the Santoku as easy
to use as a chef's knife. It is especially well suited to a down and forward
cutting motion (push cut) and many cooks swear by it for excellence in chopping
and slicing tasks.
