Santoku literally translated means 3 virtues. This traditional Japanese shaped knife is for everyday use. The Eastern equivalent to a chef's knife. The name 'three virtues' is derived from its versatility for cutting fish, meat and vegetables. The hollows added to the sides of the knife break vacuum pockets formed in dense foods to prevent sticking.
