Chef's Knife / Santoku Selection
Ask the professionals what the single most important piece of kitchen equipment is and they'll quickly say, "The chef's knife." That's because a chef's knife (or its Asian counterpart, the Japanese santoku) is a food processor all to itself that slices, dices, minces, grinds and more. Because there are so many different styles, finding a chef's knife or santoku used to be a daunting task. But now Knife Depot offers a huge selection to choose from. With a wide variety, including both the American chef's knife and the Japanese santoku, you can take your time when choosing, knowing your order will be shipped fast - often the same day.
Fantastic knife for the money. I purchased two. One for the kitchen and one for "tail-gating" at football games. Both keep an edge and are easy to sharpen with a steel. As with any good knife I hand wash and use the sharpening steel after heavy cutting.
This is an excellent knife. It looks good and handles well.
This is the best kitchen knife I've ever owned. The shape of the handle and the size of the blade are just right. This knife sharpens very easily on a fine diamond hone with a few strokes on a steel to finish. Strop is few times and it will shave. My #1 in a drawer full of pricey knives.
This is a excellent made knife, but it doesn't sharpen very easily, and if you run it through the dishwasher, the edge-holding ability decreases dramatically. Not a good combination for a house-knife. If I had an electric hone to run it through, I'd use if more often.
Very Pretty Knife, but DULL.
I am disappointed in my knife. It doesn't stay sharp. It was hard to cut with in a very short time after buying it. I have another knife which I am saving to cut the Thanksgiving turkey! I hope this knife is better than the first one I bought.
I had used my daughters knife on one occasion and found it amazing in completing the job I was doing. The knife is so sharp and has cut through everything I have used it on . We eat a lot of corn on the cob in the summer and I cook it in the microwave and,cut the fat end off and just shake the corn out and this knife is the only one I have that will cut through the large end of a piece of sweet corn, I also bought one for a friend because I was so impressed with the knife.
I'm a 6'4" guy and this is my favorite kitchen knife. It seems to be the right size for about every task and holds an edge better than any of my German knifes. The end is even good for spreading mayo:)
