Santoku knives vs. chef knives

Santoku knives are typically shorter and lighter than chef knives, with a thinner blade that tapers to a point. This makes them ideal for slicing and dicing vegetables and delicate tasks like mincing garlic or ginger. 

Chef knives, on the other hand, are usually longer and heavier, with thicker blades and curved edges. This design makes them better suited for tasks such as chopping meat or crushing garlic cloves.
