Santoku Japanese chef knives are designed to be thin knives that slice, cut & chop easily through meat or vegetables to maintain the integrity of each component and freshness.

Santoku knives are also known in Japan as Bunka Bōchō.  In the U.S. the Bunka is sometimes used to describe the Kengata Santoku which has the angled tip allowing for more detailed slicing or cutting.
