Messermeister Mu Micarta 6.1/2" Santoku Knife with Damascus Blade - MU-203
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 world’s most popular knives. The spine runs parallel to the relatively flat cutting edge, which ensures a steady, balanced knife.
The word Santoku translates as “3 good things,” which means it is versatile like a chef’s knife and cuts vegetables, fish and meat.
