Santoku means "3 properties" in Japanese. The santoku knife is called this way because it is really versatile and is used to cut but also chisel and slice meat, fishes and including vegetables. Its use is close to the bunka knife one but the bunka has a broken angle.

Knives with double bevels are knives sharpened on both sides of the blade. It is the kind of knife used in Europe. Our knives with double bevels are the perfect match between double bevels and traditional Japanese blade. The blade enables a precise and clear cut.
