Santoku knives from WMF: top quality in a Japanese style
The all-rounder with centuries of tradition
WMF Santoku knives combine Japanese tradition with a modern look. The "three virtues knife" enhances every knife assortment and gives you perfect precision!
Vegetables, meat or fish – it can do it all!
Santoku knives have a centuries-old tradition. They were originally designed in Japan to save housewives from needing to deal with multiple knives. Its special shape makes the Santoku knife just as well suited to chopping vegetables as to slicing meat and dicing fish.
Santoku knives from WMF: dedicated to that perfect cut
The trademark of a Santoku knife is its special shape. Whereas the blade widths of European utility knives are often aligned with the width of the handle, the blade of a Santoku knife goes beyond the handle. This gives your fingers more space underneath the handle and means you can cut different types of vegetable, meat and fish using just one knife without any problems. Furthermore, the Santoku knife is often lighter than its European counterparts. Santoku knives from WMF are designed for push cutting – their special shape means a rocking motion is not possible but also not necessary.
Cut, chop, transfer: a fluent transition guaranteed
Flowing movements are extremely important in Japanese culture. From the charming geisha girl doing her fan dance to the honourable samurai wielding his blade, the flow of energy is all important and the key to understanding the Japanese way of life. No wonder that a Santoku knife gives you a fluent and effortless transition between one cut and the next.
Slice up your vegetables or chop up herbs and get your ingredients from the chopping board to the pot quickly using the knife's wide blade. The utility knife complements every knife set in its own special way and makes an excellent present for the cook in your life, whether a budding amateur or a seasoned professional.
Extraordinary sharpness for quick work
With its Yari range WMF has created a special collection of Santoku knives which combine traditional Far Eastern design with the functionality of WMF knives. The Yari blades are forged using 67 layers of japanese special blade steel. Yari Santoku knives are extremely sharp thanks to their particularly acute cutting angle.
