Some amazing bargain santokus come from a surprising source: Western knife makers.
  • Anolon, based in California, makes one with a durable, sharp edge ($30; anolon.com).

  • Arkansas-based Ginsu (of infomercial fame) produces the sturdy Chikara ($40; genuineginsu.com).

  • And Germany’s Henckels has the new, low-cost Mikado line with a graceful santoku ($35; bedbathandbeyond.com).
