Made by the esteemed company Wüsthof, this 5” Forged Santoku Knife (4173-7) shines with professional qualities. Taking its name from the Japanese Cook’s Knife, this blade is highly versatile and works equally well for preparing delicate Asian cuisine as well as varied western dishes. The knife is forged from one piece of specially tempered high carbon steel for outstanding strength and features a full tang handle for optimal longevity. To facilitate clean, professional cuts the knife is made with an ergonomic synthetic handle and an evenly-weighted design. The blade of the knife is hollowed to create air pockets, thereby increasing efficiency in the kitchen by keeping foods from sticking to the metal.
