Made from the very best German Steel, our full-tang Premier Forged blades are polished and sharpened in our Massachusetts facilities. Handles of exotic imported hardwoods and acrylics are assembled to the blades with triple rivets and then the knives are processed and sharpened to perfection.

The Santoku is a general-purpose kitchen knife similar to the chef’s knife. The blade of the Santoku is not as curved as a chef’s knife, resulting in more of a chopping motion instead of a rocking motion. It performs well at slicing, dicing, and mincing.

A Kullenschliff (K) edge, also known as a Granton- or Hollow-Edge, is designed to create an air pocket between the food and the blade, helping to prevent sticking.

What is a Santoku knife?

Features

  • Signature Craftsmanship. Meticulously formed in our Massachusetts facilities, each of our knives is finished to perfection using state-of-the-art technology coupled with hand finishing as well as proprietary polishing and sharpening processes. You will never find a better Forged knife anywhere.
  • Unmatched Blade Quality. Blades are precision-forged from the finest high-carbon Grade 4116 stainless steel from Solingen, Germany, using the traditional hot-drop method. Blades are then tempered and ice-hardened to a perfect 58 on the Rockwell Hardness Scale.. This results in a hard, wickedly sharp blade that retains an edge for longer and is both highly corrosion-resistant and elastic.
  • Gorgeous & Ergonomic Handles. Knives come with a choice of 5 sleek and sturdy handles of either Tough Acrylic (Fire Series & ICE Series), Striated Wood (SIERRA), Infused Walnut, or incredibly strong G-10 (Midnight Series).
  • Superior Handling & Cutting Performance. Full tang blades with triple-riveted handles ensure ideal balance and weight. Our combination machine and hand-sharpening processes ensures a consistently sharp and durable edge.
  • Lifetime Warranty. Every Lamson product comes with a Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects
  • Guaranteed reliability. Our Sharp for Life™ program supplies a lifetime of complimentary professional sharpening on every knife we make.

Lamson knives are not dishwasher safe. See Lamson Product Care for more information.

    In addition to cutting really well the knife is beautiful. I’ve received many comments on it from friends. I leave it on the cutting board on my counter so I can enjoy it. Great purchase.

  2. Eric K. (verified owner)

    This knife is as awesome as it is beautiful. We now fight over who gets to cut up the veggies…

    Recently purchased the Lamson 5″ Santoku knife (midnight black handle). We previously had a Wustof which was good, but the 5″ Lamson has a better overall quality feel, it’s thicker and therefore a bit heavier which all translates to better performance. Credit the local Boston Chronicle TV show for making me aware that there was such a high quality knife manufacturer in Massachusetts where I live. Would definitely buy other Lamson products.

    Like it a lot. Very sharp and cood

    In 2018 I bought a Lamson 5″ Santoku, and it is the most AMAZING knife!!! It actually makes it fun to cut food! I reach for this knife all the time. – I lived in Japan from 1990-93, and had been happily using my many knives acquired there, but now my favorite by far is my Lamson! (We do sharpen our Japanese knives, so the difference is not just because of age.) You won’t regret investing in these knives. And I love that they are made right here in Massachusetts.

    This purchase was a gift to my daughter. She loves the knife and is looking forward to adding to her collection. The knife cuts and chops beautifully, the balance while holding it is super, and the handle is simply stunning. Wonderful product.

DID YOU KNOW?! 🤯
In 1869, newly elected U.S. president Ulysses S. Grant received a “cutting edge” gift from a small manufacturer in Shelburne Falls Massachusetts. Lamson presented our nation’s leader with a 62-piece dinner set. 
The handcrafted pieces bore handles of ivory, while others were pure mother-of-pearl. The 62 pieces remain in the nation’s capital on display at the Smithsonian Institution.
