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.
This knife maker is Sawakazuma from Echizen city, Fukui which is located along the Sea of Japan. Echizen knives have a long history, dating back 700 years. While Japanese knives as a whole are typically designed with thinner blades than their European counterparts, the knives coming from Echizen take that a step further and are even narrower.
