A Santoku knife is an all purpose kitchen knife originating from Japan. Its blade is normally within the five to eight inches range, has a flat edge and a sheepsfoot blade which angles at approximately 60 degrees at the point. Loosely interpreted, “Santoku” means “three virtues” or “three uses”. This is in reference to the three cutting roles the knife does well – slicing, dicing and mincing.
Shun DM0718 Classic 7-Inch Santoku Hollow Ground Knife is part of the Shun Classic line. This versatile knife is the answer to many of your kitchen cutting needs!
This item is a cross between a cleaver and a chef’s knife, having a wide blade measuring 6-1/2 inches in length. The detailed depressions or scallops running along its cutting edge forms air pockets while in use, thus, preventing the food from sticking to the steel surface.
This Santoku knife makes use of Damascus steel. Not only is the product visually appealing, it also inhibits food particles from sticking to it and squashing the food.

This is the best kitchen knife that I have gotten. I have Kasumi, Kyocera ceramic, Henckels, plus some Japanese sashimi knives. This is the sharpest knife that I have gotten from the factory.
