The Shun Classic Granton Santoku Knife is a traditional Japanese styled, all purpose knife. The straight blade makes this knife perfect for chopping. The granton (or scalloped) blade eases cutting and helps separate food from the blade.
A santoku is a Japanese all-purpose kitchen knife. Like a chefs knife, the santoku is used for just about every cutting job in the kitchen. The name means “three virtues.” Depending on who you ask, the name refers either to the three types of foods it works well with—vegetables, proteins, and fruit—or for the three types of cuts at which it excels—slicing, dicing, and chopping. Hollow-ground indentations on the blade help reduce friction so the blade glides through the food more easily. All Shun Classic knives come in a beautifully presented gift box.
