This Santoku knife from the Wusthof Performer collection performs the three essential cutting tasks a Santoku is named for: slicing, dicing, and mincing. The blade of a Santoku is thinner than the blade of a chef’s knife. The blade edge is also sharpened at a more acute angle than Western-style blades. The hollow-ground indentations create air pockets to push food away from the blade as you work, making this knife ideal for slicing food that tends to stick to knife blades.
The Wusthof Performer collection combines centuries of expert artisanship with cutting-edge technology. The blade is forged from German steel, hardened to 58 Rockwell, and enhanced by a black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating. This coating is heat-resistant, scratchproof, and water-repellent, with a 104 Rockwell hardness. The Hexagon Power Grip handle features a honeycomb design for a firm, non-slip hold, and is made from a glass fiber reinforced polymer for easy care. Hand wash. Made in Germany.
