The Messermeister Custom 7" Kullens Santoku is a popular Japanese chef's knife with the same versatility found in a traditional chef's knife. It has a thin taper for maximum precision when slicing vegetables, fish and meat. The handle is slightly smaller than a western Chef's knife. With edge geometry that is mostly flat, the Santoku is ideal for use on a cutting board.
Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately. Do not place in dishwasher. Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts. Oil the wood handle as needed with food-safe mineral oil.
