Shun Sora Santoku Knife 18cm
A knife of many talents, a santoku easily handles all the basic kitchen cutting tasks and has a little belly curve for rocking cuts and is slightly shorter than a typical chefs knife.
The santoku is an Asian-inspired knife that many cooks today have added to their kitchen favourites.
There's just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which adds to the Sora Santoku's versatility. The blade is extra-special because of the hollow-ground indentations on the side of the blade. They create small air pockets that reduce friction when cutting, making it easier to glide through the cut. If you’ve had problems with sticking, try a hollow-ground blade.
All Shun Sora knives are presented in an attractive gift box.
