A santoku is a Japanese all-purpose kitchen knife. Like a chef’s 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. When we first introduced the Shun Classic Hollow-Ground Santoku to the market it was named Kitchen Knife of the Year by Blade magazine. The Shun Classic Hollow-Ground Santoku is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery.

The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's VG10 steel known for its incredible edge retention is clad with Damascus stainless steel then ground and bead-blasted revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp durable and corrosion resistant as well as beautiful to behold. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs so you can always find the right knife for the task.
