Santoku is Japanese style chef's knife, about 16-18cm. The name derives from the Japanese for 'three virtues', because it is good at three things: slicing, dicing and mincing. So, in other words, it's a chef's knife. These are great tools and a superb alternative or addition to a Western chef's knife.
Most knives aren’t dishwasher safe, but this 7-inch santoku can handle the dishwasher after you’re done chopping, mincing, and dicing. The blade is made from Japanese steel that has a rust-resistant coating. That coating makes the knife safe at heats above the standard dishwasher temperatures, and it has even been tested in commercial dishwashers. Of course, you can also wash it by hand, if you prefer.
The handle has a textured nonslip grip that is easy to hold onto, even when it’s wet.
