The Shun Premier Blonde 7-in. Santoku is a beautiful, Asian-inspired chef's knife that many cooks today have added to their kitchen favorites. A knife of many talents, a santoku easily handles all the essential kitchen cutting tasks. Slightly shorter than the standard chef's knife, the Shun Premier Blonde Santoku is light, agile, and very easy to maneuver. There's just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which just adds to the Premier Blonde Santoku's versatility. The santoku is as easy to use as a chef's knife and is especially well suited to a down-and-forward cutting motion (push cut).
