Santoku Santoku knives originally come from Asian cuisine and are the Japanese version of the chef’s knife. The shape of the blade of the santoku is, unlike a chef’s knife, practically the same alongside the entire length of the blade and only has a slight curve a couple centimeters from the tip towards the spine. In addition, the Santoku is lighter and shorter than its European brother which makes the Santoku very popular.  With a santoku knife a cutting technique is used that diverts from a chef’s knife. Because of the flat blade the santoku won’t rock on the cutting edge like the blade of a chef’s knife. You hold a santoku at the handle and cut with a movement from back-up to down-front. With every cut the blade will lose contact with the cutting board. Keep the fingers of the hand you use to hold the ingredient turned inwards and prevent cutting in your fingers. Here the same applies: practice, practice, practice and you will quickly get the hang of it.  Santoku knives aren’t better or worse than chef’s knives. It is simply a different kind of knife and a different cutting technique is used to carry out similar tasks.
