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 Four Star series of cutlery, this santoku 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 black polypropelene handle offers a secure and comfortable grip and is hygienically attached so there are no gaps between the handle and blade for food to become trapped. This santoku should be hand washed and is covered by a lifetime warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

Very sharp and well balanced.

We have been using the Four Star Santoku knife, as well as five other Henckels Four Star knives, for over a year.

This knife feels like it was custom made for my hand.

I took a knife skills class and immediately fell in love with this santoku. It has a hollow and extremely sharp edge and the length allows you to smoothly rock the knife to slice quickly and effortlessly. The granton edge helps keep food from sticking to the blade while slicing and the knife itself is well-balanced with a solid bolster and tang. The wide blade is also wonderful for scooping up from the cutting board to bowl or pan. This knife is going to be my workhorse, no doubt about it!

Because it's expensive, I feel that I should warn that if you cut on glass, marble, ceramic or other hard surfaces, you'll be wasting your money, because this knife edge will be destroyed by those. It should also be honed on a fine or smooth steel before each use to keep that razor edge straight and then professionally sharpened once or twice a year.

I highly recommend this knife -- very good quality.

This is a awsome knife. Super sharp. Great weight and easy to use on almost anything Veggis, Seafood, Sushi, Beef etc. Cut Salami or Carrots paper thin. I bet you could probably take care of a Coconut with this one! The slices fall right of the side, no more sticking to the blade! Great for chopping as well. I have almost all the 4 Star Henckels and I love them all. I can highly recommend this Knife. The same Santoku knife also comes in 5 inches lenght (for ten dollars less) in case you are interested.

Cuts everything from tomatoes to squash easily -- if you have a lot of cutting to do, less fatigue on the hands. Great for use as a cleaver or a slicer. Multi-use -- I have had my Santoku for almost a year, I love it... I got the set with the 4" paring knife, too. I am to the point I only use these two knives in my kitchen for prep work.

Worth it's price.

I had always wanted one of these knives, and finally caved in and purchased one. I cannot believe how quickly I can cut up a chicken! It takes one tenth the time as with my other "sharp" knives. And, I was able to easily cut through beef ribs to separate them before cooking. If you are tired of wrestling with difficult meat joints, this is the knife for you! I give it 5 stars!

I have owned a set of four star Henckels knives for more than a decade and bought this Santoku to complement the set. All of the knives have been used multiple times daily and performed well with basic care including hand washing, hand drying, and approximately monthly dates with a matching sharpening steel.
Advantages of the Santoku over my chef's knife are the ability to chop large vegetables while maintaining good control over the wide blade and the hollow ground surface easily releases foods that would otherwise stick to the blade.
I still prefer the chef's knife for chopping smaller things, like herbs, where the deeper drop angle to the point allows more rocking motion.
This knife has the same high quality as the rest of my set and I anticipate that it, along with the others, will be part of my kitchen for a lifetime.

We have been using the Four Star Santoku knife, as well as five other Henckels Four Star knives, for over a year.

Pros - All hold a sharp edge, have good balance, are light weight, have a comfortable grip, and sharpen easily.

Cons - Should be hand washed (if hand washing is an issue for you)

Overall - The Henckels Four Star knives are high quality cutlery. And, the Santoku style chef knife has replaced our regular style chef knife as the most often used knife in the kitchen

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By M. Barrasso on August 24, 2009
I've owned Henckels for years, regularly defaulting to my trusty 8 inch Chef's Knife (which I thought was extremely sharp until I used this knife). However, after purchasing the Santoku, I find myself using it for everthing. It is the sharpest knife I have ever used. The indentations on the blade make it ideal for chopping things that normally stick to other blades (cheese and veggies). Although the blade is thinner than my other Henckels, it still feels very sturdy and substantial when held in the hand. I would highly recommend this knife to anyone who is serious about their cutlery and plans on taking the necessary steps to maintain this great knife.

I own many Henckels Four Star Series knives and while I am a fan of the Santoku style knife, I have to say I am a bit disappointed with the blade life of this model. After routine use the blad has become somewhat pitted and uneven. I've never had a similar event occur with any of my other Henckels knives and I haven't subjected this knife to any particularly harsher treatment or maintenance.

I don't know if the hollow edge is to blame or I just received a defective design, but I was unexpectedly disappointed.
