Printable Product Details Page
PurposeSANTOKU means "three benefits" in Japanese. The Granton finish helps prevent the product being sliced from sticking to the blade. Excellent knife for cutting thin slices.
It's the raised thick part between the blade and the handle, which usually distinguishes the knife as fully forged.
The bolster acts as a guard providing safety, balance, sturdiness, and comfort.
Beware of companies that manufacture knives with an imitation bolster as these knives are invariably poorer in quality compared to a “one piece fully forged” knife.
