Thread: Recommendations for a Santoku

    Recommendations for a Santoku

    Hi all,

    Been out of these forums for a bit and now I am looking for a Santoku for my newly wed wife. She complains about my Takeda cleavers/guyto - too sharp and too big/long.

    So here're her specs: Santoku, stainless steel, not wo-handle.

    Any good recommendations?

    Also Hiromoto G3 at JCK. 160mm or 190mm, Hitachi's highly regarded Gin-3 stainless, keenly priced.

    I've never used a santoku and thought "Wow, this knife is fantastic!", so i'd go with a Sakai Takayuki Hammer texture Damascus Santoku or something. OK balance wise, cuts pretty good, and is pretty, plus it's not expensive.

    Rounded off tip relative to a gyuto is your friend.
