Shun Santoku Knife Review

Need a Knife that will last forever, yes I know it sounds to good to be true but these Shun Premier Santoku Knives will do just that because of the care that goes into making them.To the right is a knife called the 7 inch Santoku knife which means "three virtues" which means it can be used for your mincing, slicing, and dicing in the kitchen. As with all the other Shun knives they are crafted by hammering by hand. They also are crafted with Damascus steel making the price tag higher because of the durability of Damascus steel.

All this customisation goes into these knives for the cutters comfort. The hand hammering is done because it allows the knife to slide right through what your cutting without the food sticking to it. Also the Pakkawood gives the knife a beautiful look that most knives don't have. These knives even look good from the bamboo block made by Shun.

What I love most about this knife is the almost custom curve the blade has, this makes it a lot more comfortable to cut things. I also don't have a sore hand from cutting anymore. Also the 16 degree angle that these are cut at makes it a lot sharper.

Also something that I don't recommend but you can do it. These blades are dishwasher safe.
