Wusthof Grand Prix II Hollow Edge Santoku, 5"
Loosely translated, the word ‘santoku’ means ‘three virtues’ or ‘three uses’ - slicing, dicing and mincing. The blade design is a Japanese adaptation of the more commonly known western style chef’s knife. Santokus generally have straighter edges, are thicker than chef’s knives and have a blunted sheep’s foot style blade. This knife is a general purpose workhorse in the kitchen and can accomplish all the tasks of the more commonly known chef’s knife.
The Wusthof Grand Prix II series includes an array of professional quality knives. The knives are completely drop forged from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel alloy in Wusthof’s Solingen, Germany factory. The steel alloy provides for a razor-sharp edge and is stain, rust and corrosion resistant. The Grand Prix II’s polypropylene ergonomic handle is designed to ensure durability and a comfortable no-slip grip. Each knife is carefully hand-honed and weighted for ultimate sharpness and performance.
