The Signature 17cm/7" santoku knife has a wide scalloped blade for precision slicing and dicing.
Designed in consultation with professional chefs, this 17cm Santoku knife from the multi-award winning Signature range features a fully forged German DIN 1.4116 stainless steel blade with a full tang for superior strength and balance. The Japanese-style blade edge is hand applied at a 15° angle. The handle is made from tactile DuPont™ and is ergonomically shaped for comfort and to minimise fatigue. The RW insignia is a permanent steel detail of the handle.
A wide scalloped blade makes Santoku knives ideal for the precision slicing and dicing of fruit and vegetables. The scalloped indentations create air pockets, pushing food from the blade and reducing friction when slicing. The flat blade edge relies on a more singular downward cutting action, compared to the two-step slicing and rocking action of a cooks knife.
