Messermeister Mu Micarta - 6.1/2" Santoku Knife - MU-103
Also known as a Japanese Chef’s Knife, the Santoku is a wide blade knife with an overall thinner spine and taper than a French or German style Chef’s Knife. The thin taper (or blade thickness) is lengthened to give it maximum precision when slicing. The Santoku Knife is one of the worlds most popular knives.The spine runs parallel to the relatively flat cutting edge, which has a bolsterless heel and only curves near the tip to create a broad bladed knife similar in shape to a cleaver.
The word Santoku translates as “3 good things,” which means it is versatile like a chef’s knife and cuts vegetables, fish and meat.
