Made with Zwilling’s characteristic high-quality German stainless steel, this Santoku-style is lightweight and ideal for slicing, dicing, and mincing. It also features grantons, small indentions in the blade, which prevents food from sticking while cutting — the perfect knife for prepping meat, fish, and vegetables.

What was I thinking? This well-balanced, exquisitely sharp knife replaces most of them. I'm small boned and have arthritis in my wrists.
