Santoku & Nakiri Knives

The Santoku is a Japanese style knife used primarily for veggies but is truly a multipurpose and versatile knife. The Japanese word santoku means "the knife of three virtues" or the knife to solve three problems. Namely, slicing, mincing and dicing. The hollow scallops on the blade called Kullenschliff or Granton scallops, are designed to help stop food from sticking to the blade while cutting.

The Nakiri is an awesome Japanese style general-purpose kitchen knife similar to a santoku knife. The blade of the nakiri is heavier and thicker than a santoku, resulting in more of a chopping motion instead of a rocking motion. It performs extremely well at chopping, slicing, dicing, and mincing. The blade does not have a sharp tip, making it safer to use than many other knife styles.
