A Santoku Knife is a knife based on the classic Japanese concept of balance. by balancing the weight of the handle with the weight of the blade, the knife works together to create a knife that works together to give optimal cutting and handling capabilities. The word Santoku translates as "three uses" which refers to the tasks in which the Santoku knife performs well at: mincing, slicing and dicing. Santoku knives are lighter, shorter and thinner than Western chef knives. The Santoku knife is normally between 15 centimetres and 18 centimetres in length. They can often be fluted, allowing for a thinner slice. This type of knife is gaining popularity in the West and is being product by more manufacturers than ever before.
