If you've noticed that dicing an onion or chopping a bounty of cruciferous vegetables has been a little trickier than usual, it's possible you need a sharper chef's knife. For those looking for a new knife recommendation, consider the Imarku 7-Inch Santoku Knife, which has been slashed to just $34 at Amazon.

Forged from German stainless steel, the santoku knife is incredibly sharp. It's designed to be used for all your daily kitchen tasks like dicing, slicing, mincing, and chopping everything from meats and fish to vegetables and fruit. This type of steel means it won't rust or corrode and will stay sharp over time, so you don't have to constantly rehone it, too. And unlike other knives, a santoku knife is constructed with scalloped hollow edges which prevent items from sticking to the blade.

The santoku knife is finished off with an ergonomic pakkawood handle that offers a comfortable grip and also minimizes wrist tension while you're chopping. To preserve the life of the knife, just make sure to wash it by hand after you're finished using it—don't simply toss it into the dishwasher.

Nearly 2,000 Amazon shoppers have given the knife a five-star rating, with reviewers calling it their "favorite kitchen knife." One user wrote, "I was amazed at the quality of this knife that should cost much more," while another said, "I use it every day and [it] still works like a champ."

"I wanted to cut vegetables, but when I use this knife it feels like I am slicing through the seams of reality," one five-star reviewer shared. "It cuts through vegetables like they are nonexistent. I thought it would cut through my cutting board, but alas my cutting board survived the onslaught. The only con I have is that it is so sharp, it may be intimidating to the average user at first (such as myself), but after a couple of veggies, you adapt to the pressure that [it] needs to cut."

"The santoku knife is one of my all-time favorites, and this one is outstanding!" another shopper explained. "The handle is easy to hold and feels great in your hand. The weight is perfect for me, and the sharpness? Well, let's just say it sliced through sweet potatoes like butter. I'd highly recommend this knife!"

Head to Amazon and shop the Imarku 7-Inch Santoku Knife for just $34 before the sale ends.
