Description

Forged from one piece of specially tempered high-carbon steel to ensure outstanding strength, this multipurpose workhorse is perfect for professional chefs and home-cooking enthusiasts.

Fantastic addition to any kitchen!
I already had a wonderful set of knives, but no Santoku. I purchased the 7"" size and use it all the time--strong enough to cut through artichokes and even frozen pumpkin bread. If you are even considering making this purchase, it is definitely worth the money!

"Wusthof 7"" Santoku Knife"
I have always wanted a Santoku knife and when this one went on special, I went to the store to see it. I loved it and bought it. The price was so good, I got another as a Christmas gift. When I used the knife, I liked it so much, I went online and bought a third one as a gift. The price was amazing for such a high quality knife, shipping was free, and it came in no time! I was highly satisfied with my experience in both the store and online, not to mention to knife itself

Santoku knife for veges and fruits
I have a set of great knives, but never had one like this one. I love it

Front line knife
If you only have three knives in your kitchen it would be my opinion that this should be one of them! I call it a vegetable cleaver and and it works wonders. Something about how the blade sits in relation to the handle and leaves plenty of room for my hand curled around it makes it super comfortable to use. Well-balanced with good heft this knife is a great addition to any kitchen.

Amazing Knife
The 5 inch knife is the best knife I have owned. Its very light yet amazing for cutting all kinds of vegetables. The blade is very sharp. Thanks Sur la Table Santana Row store for allowing me to experiment the different knives to see one which fits best for me.

Wusthof 5" Santoko knife so in love
This is my first Wusthof knife and I love how it feels on my hand. I have complete control. I love how I am able to make chicken cutlets with such ease. With the bigger knifes I always felt unsafe and did not have enough control. Is not to long or to short, it has weight to it. I will be getting more of the Wusthof Classic that is for sure.

I also wanted to give 5 start rating for the actual store. I loved how I was able to test the knife at the store and all my questions were answer.

I have a very inexpensive 5 inch santoku which has become my favorite knife. I am sure I will like it even more when it is a quality knife from Wusthof. I have a large Henckels collection but this is the size of knife I want and it's a great price.
