More Sizes:

The Wusthof 5-in. Classic Santoku Knife delivers high-quality cutting and slicing in a compact form. The knife is an excellent size for regular use by those with smaller hands. It's also ideal for creating detailed and intricate cuts in meats and vegetables. Each knife comes with a wide blade that lets you scoop up sliced materials easily, and the hollow edge helps prevent sticking during use. A weighted bolster on each knife ensures excellent balance, and a curved heel keeps your hand in the right place as you cut. Each blade also has full-tang construction with three separate rivets holding the easy-grip handle in place for exceptional stability. The knives are hand forged in Germany using high-carbon steel that resists staining and lasts for years of daily use.

Best Used For:
Use the straight-edged chef's knife to quickly slice through fruits, vegetables and meats. Chop up ingredients for Asian-style dishes, and enjoy a taste of the East in your own home. Scoop diced vegetables and thin-sliced meats into a wok or pan filled with noodles to create quick and delicious homemade stir-fry.

  • I bought two different Wusthof Santoku knives because I wanted two sizes and I wanted to compare quality and performance. I found both to be exceptional knives. Slick and sharp, first knife I'd ever used that actually sliced through green onions with total ease.

    I recommend this product.

  • The knife is a fun addition to my knife collection but I would not recommend it as a first purchase. Having the larger brother Wusthof Santoku as one of my two favorite knives, this was an addition for small chopping jobs and a supplement to my paring knife. The knife is light so not used for heavy chopping but its thin blade makes it nice for vegetable prep and smaller slicing jobs.
    Netting it out, the knife is useful but an expensive addition to an already populated knife set. I would not suggest it be your first knife!

    I recommend this product.

  • Sharp knife for a sharp price

    I have used the Santoku knife several times since I purchased it and found it to be better than expected. the blade is sharp and due to its unique shape can easily slice very thin portions without effort.

    This is my favorite knife for almost all of my cooking duties. I own more than a dozen Wusthof Trident kitchen knives already, including another of these. I ordered another one of these for my winter home in Arizona. They last forever!
