Product Description

Amazon.com

The Japanese version of the chef’s knife, the santoku is useful for straight chopping, mincing, and slicing of larger quantities of vegetables and meat. Cooks with smaller hands may prefer this 7-inch blade as the shorter length offers better control while cutting. The width also provides a great platform for transporting chopped vegetables from cutting board to sauté pan. This version of the santoku actually has a hollow edge or oval cut-outs along the blade. The benefit to this blade style is that cooks can cut paper-thin slices and individual slices won’t stick to the blade.

Part of the Pro S series of cutlery, this knife has a fully forged high-carbon stainless-steel blade. The blade, bolster, and tang are welded of one piece of metal using Henckels’s Sinter Metal Component Technology, which distributes the right quantities of metal to each part of the knife. The result is a longer-lasting edge and a more consistent angle on the blade. The blade has also undergone Henckels’s Friodur ice-hardening process, which further strengthens it and protects it from discoloration. The traditional-style black synthetic handle is secured to the tang with three stainless-steel rivets. This santoku is covered by a lifetime warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

From the Manufacturer

The J.A. Henckels Twin Professional S (or Pro S) knife series features trustworthy quality and classic three-rivet styling--it’s a line of knives admired by both professional chefs and home cooks of all skill levels. The Twin Pro S line contains knives for all tasks, including the following open stock knife types: parer, bread, peeling, sandwich, utility, carving, steak, chef’s, Granton edge slicer, santoku, and others. Twin Pro S knives are also available in a range of block sets and gift sets, to be sure that your cutlery needs are covered.

A Reliable Standard in Knife Construction

Twin Pro S knives are precision forged from a single piece of exclusive-formula, high-carbon, no-stain steel under the all-new Sigmaforge standard. As a result, Twin Pro S knives have improved quality consistency, lasting sharpness, and perfect geometry. Sigmaforge one-piece construction also provides high precision and improved stability of the blade and steel structure, thus improving cutting-edge retention for lasting sharpness. In addition, Twin Pro S knives use J.A. Henckels’s Friodur ice hardening for corrosion resistance, a process that also contributes to cutting-edge retention.

J.A. Henckels’s Twin Pro S knives boast a comfortable, ergonomic three-rivet handle design that won’t wear against the hand and helps to provide control when doing any cutting task. These durable Novodur handles are perfectly bonded to the full tang on each knife for stability and durability. The impeccably balanced super bolster provides weight and adds balance for safer and more professional cutting.

First, not sure what reviewers are talking about-- sounds like some of them received the wrong knife and did not return it, but I'll speak specifically on the J.A. Henckels Pro S 7" Santoku Knife with Hollow Edge.

I own several knives, but I find that I use this one almost exclusively-- it cuts through anything with ease and minimal force-- I've used it on chicken, beef, pork chops, onions, peppers, garlic, ginger, carrots, broccoli, grapefruit... I could go on, but I suspect you get the point (and I wanted to emphasize-- these are thought of as vegetable knives-- it cuts through anything with ease, though I haven't-- and won't-- try it through bone). The only problem with it is that it cuts so well, I have to be careful not to cut things too small because its so easy to work with!

I also find that things I'd normally use a paring knife for, like mincing garlic, I'm using this. Additionally, per advertisement, nothing sticks to the side of the blade due to the hollowed out grooves. Not really sure how it works, but I don't really care. This is really a superb knife and has taken its place as my main all purpose knife.

You need to make sure that you have the "PRO S" version of this knife as Henckels has several 7-Inch Santoku knives with hollow edge and they had been shipping wrong ones in the past. However, they might have straightened out their act after I reported the mistake to their customer service. So, please, please make sure you knife says "PRO S" and has a twin tribal men on the logo.

As some of the previous reviewers posted (and some had been deleted), Amazon had been listing the wrong item here. Many people were purchasing the Henckels International Classic 7-Inch Santoku Knife with Hollow Edge, not "Part of the Pro S series of cutlery" as stated in the Amazon product review by Cristina Vaamonde or the "J.A. Henckels Professional S 7 inch Santoku knife with hollow edge" as stated in the Amazon product description. And even though the photo of the product shows the double Henckels men, the knife being shipped only had one Henckels man...another indication that it's not worth $74.99-$84.99 Amazon price or the $110.00 retail price it's listing. The International Classic knife can be purchased at Target, JCPenny and a whole bunch of other stores for the retail price of $39.99. If you paid $74.99-84.99 for the wrong knife, please get your money back!!!

My husband purchased the Pro S Santoku knife as a gift. I had been drooling over them for a year, but thought the expense was too much to put out "for a knife". But, since I am always cooking, and we felt it was a wise investment,I finally received one. I do not look at knives in the same way any longer.

First, let me say that without a doubt, the investment is WORTH IT. I knew this the first slice I made through a potato. It was as if I were cutting through butter with a hot knife. So smooth - so quick. I was amazed.

Once I got used to how sharp it is (was actually proud of my first cut) and how to handle it, there is no stopping to what I can cut. I use it on vegetables of all kinds, cubing beef, and even slicing through thick sandwiches. I make sure I use the truing blade, and it's as if I just purchased it.

I am so pleased with Henckles, that I now own the cleaver, paring knife, and chef's knife. My husband and I have decided to collect the Pro S line for our kitchen. Great quality, solid handles, even weight - and swift through anything you put them to. Would recommend to anyone who is looking to invest in their kitchen's hardware. I know I will be pleased with them for many years to come.

I have this knife as part of a 15 piece Pro-S set. There are a lot of positives to this knife, and taken in context of a German blade,... it performs quite well. First, it does not have a large bolster that extends down to the blade's edge. This makes sharpening MUCH easier and allows you to used th whole blade. The tip lets you do detail work well and I never use a paring knife anymore. The blade thickness is pretty constant over the entire blade (from the edge to to the spine) at about 2mm. Its not nearly as wedge shaped as Henckels Chef knives which tend to split hard vegies rather than cut them.

The edge is ground reasonably sharp from the factory, but its by no means a razor edge. A good diamond stone, paired with a ceramic or Japanese waterstones can put a much nicer edge than the factory one.

So why only 3 stars? First, the blade, while thin by German standards, is postively chunky when compared to Japanese knives. Not just Shun, but more specifically Japanese knives, from Japan which have blades that are just as stiff, but literally a fraction of the thickness near the edge. This translates into superior cutting and less force needed.

Second, this knife does not hold an edge for very long. I can get a shaving sharp edge on the knife, but it won't keep it for longer than a few weeks. Even when wiping dry the blade after each use and hand washing only, the edge just won't hold

Thrid, its just not quite long enough. Its fine for chopping most thing, but long veggies, and meat require a sawing action or two cuts which is not ideal.

Lastly, the granton scallops are useless. Other reviewers state that food does not stick to their blades. They alwasy stick to mine.
