The Wusthof 7-in. Classic Santoku Knife delivers exceptional quality, making it an essential component of any well-equipped kitchen. This Japanese knife is traditionally used for slicing fish and seafood for sushi and sashimi. Thanks to its precisely angled blade, it's capable of making paper-thin slices of virtually any ingredient. Use it for beef carpaccio, beef for a Philly cheesesteak, pepperoni for a pizza or belly pork for a Chinese delicacy. If you have smaller hands, you'll likely prefer this style of knife over a chef's knife or a cleaver. It's perfect for slicing and dicing veggies and potatoes. You can even use it to finely mince garlic, ginger and herbs. The blade features shallow indentations, known as a Granton edge. These indentations allow the food you're cutting to slide right off the blade without sticking. Each Wusthof knife has been hand-forged by skilled craftsmen, so you can count on professional-level quality. The company uses state-of-the-art computer technology to sharpen the blade. With their perfect angles, these blades stay sharp even with frequent use. This santoku knife features a full tang, meaning that the blade runs the entire length of the handle. Full-tang knives are renowned for their durability and precision. Because the handle is riveted to the blade, the knife responds well to each of your movements, allowing you to chop, slice and dice like the pros.

Features:

  • Shallow indentations keep foods from sticking to the knife
  • Precisely sharpened blade stays sharp for a long time, even if you use the knife frequently
  • Hand-forged by skilled craftsmen
  • Constructed from high-carbon stainless steel, so the blade is exceptionally hard and strong
  • Fits comfortably in your hand
  • Blade Length: 7-in.
  • Cleaning & Care: Handwash with Mild Cleanser
  • Material Blade: High Carbon Stainless Steel
  • Material Handle: Polypropylene
  • Model No.: 4183-7
  • Origin: Germany
  • Warranty: Lifetime
  • MOST HELPFUL REVIEWS:

  • I LOVE this knife. Use it almost every day. Am buying it for a couple of people for Christmas. It is my primary slicing, dicing, mincing tool. And I have an extensive set of Wusthof knives. I use most of them, but I use this one most frequently. Exceptional.

    I recommend this product.

  • This is one beautiful knife. If you like using a chef's knife, but might appreciate something more agile and deft, try this santoku. The edge holds its sharpness. Wusthof's quality is absolutely top-notch.

  • Since this knife is new I am not sure it is worth $90. I found a Chicago Cutlery one for $9.99 for our second home. Right now both work great. We will have to judge the value over time.

  • This is a really sharp knife. So sharp that I wasn't used to the extra care you need when handling it for the first time; even a slight impact against your skin will puncture it! The handle is a little thinner than ideal so my grip was somewhat un-ergonomical; there are fuller handles out there that promote more control and less hand strain but this one works once you get used to it.

  • After waiting so excitedly for theSantoku knife, I find that is not particularly special in the way it slices. It is not much different from the 7" chef's knife.
    The price seems exorbitant to me.

  • I love this knife! It slices to quickly and easily through all the different veggies I prepare. It's especially great with tougher foods like sweet potatoes and pineapple. I even used it on a pretty tough loaf of bread - it cuts better than a bread knife. Great for mincing, too, as food does not stick as much to the blade.

    I recommend this product.

  • This year both I and my father asked for good knives for Christmas, and after a lot of research I thought this would be the best one to have. I've never had a super-sharp, well-made knife before, and boy was this a beauty to slice with. It's just amazing how easily one can chop and slice with a good knife. I suspect this will get a lot of use as my all-purpose knife.

    I recommend this product.

  • Great knife! It is my first Santoku and I was not sure it would measure up to my great Wusthof Classic 8" Chef's knife, but it's just as good & versatile. A good addition to the block.
