    This is a santoku knife, 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.
