Shun Classic Santoku 130mm

About the Shape - This is also a multi-purpose knife, but with a slight vegetable bias. Santoku means 'Three Virtues' or 'To solve Three Problems'. The virtues or problems are slicing, dicing and mincing. Santoku is usually found in 160mm - 190mm lengths. These are more and more popular in Western kitchens due to the unique shape and smaller easy to handle size.

About Shun - Shun Classic knives were one of the first commercially available Japanese knives available outside of Japan. Their popularity lies in their ruggedness and good looks. The blades are made with VG10 stainless steel clad with softer Damascus look steel. The Pakka wood ‘D’  shaped handles are very popular.
