Shigemitsu Hamono Santoku-bocho 175mm Shirogami #2
Santoku knives come in different lengths, blade heights, blade paths, profiles, weights, steels, heat treatments and grinds, and with a variety of handles. So what is it that they have in common?
Cutting ability. Everything else aside (and ignoring the 'three virtues' implied in the name), cutting feel and usability are why the santoku is the knife so many choose to use. Length is always moderate. Height is generally modest.
Santoku knives are 'enough' and never 'too much'. They're here for everyday use. Inoue san's santoku follows the theme and is a size and form that's perfectly suited to daily meal preparation for a family. A pointy, utilitarian cutter that's easy to sharpen and nice to own and use.
