seki magoroku DAMAscus

- santoku AE5200 -

The Santoku is the traditional Japanese shape for a universal knife, similar to the European Chef’s knife. The blade length with between 160 mm and 180 mm and the wide blade are ideal for flexible use. 


The meaning of the word ‘Santoku’s clearly explains what it is best used for: the ‘three uses’ or ‘three advantages’ of the chopping, dicing and mincing for fish, meat and vegetables.


The cutting edge is more curved than the Nakiri or Gyuto on the tip side. This makes the contact line of your knife and the cutting board shorter. It means you can concentrate more power on the cutting point with less effort.
