The Shun Dual Core Santoku Knife is ready to shine in your kitchen as a versatile cutting tool. After all, the santoku is designed to be a go-to option for all the basic kitchen cutting tasks. This blade shape is slightly shorter compared to a standard chef's knife, but it's also light, agile, and easy to maneuver. That convenience makes all the difference for some chefs. Even with its unique blade shape, you're still getting enough belly curve to make effective rocking cuts. That makes it just as easy to use as a chef's knife. We think you'll agree the Dual Core 7-in. Santoku is a perfect companion for those who want a general-purpose kitchen knife.
