Top 10 Santoku Knife In Malaysia

Santoku knife or also known as ‘Bunka bocho’ is a general-purpose Japanese knife. It usually has a blade length of 13 cm to 20 cm with a flat edge which has a 60 degrees angle. The blade mimics the tip of a sheep’s foot which draws the spine to the front. The word ‘santoku’ means the many varieties of ingredients the knife can handle which includes meat, fish, vegetables and more. A santoku knife’s blade and handle are designed to work well by balancing the blade’s width and weight to the weight of the tang and its handle.

Santoku knives are often compared with a chef’s knife. Although they are both versatile and can be used for multi-purpose chopping and cutting, they differ in terms of their blade angles and the techniques of using these knives. A Santoku knife uses an up-down chopping method while a chef’s knife often uses a rocking motion to chop and slice. Santoku knife and chef’s knife complement each other as it is advantageous to have both.
