The santoku knife, also called bunka bocho
(culture knife), is primarily used for vegetables and fish. It is an
Asian inspired knife which, due to its popularity and functionality, has
also begun being produced by european brands during the recent years.
It is generally flatter than the gyuto knife and has a less pointy tip.
Since it is flatter, the wrist is in a more natural position and the
shoulder does not need to be raised as high. Though these knives do not
require as much room to cut, they are not always as suitable when doing
Western cutting techniques as a gyuto knife would.
The general size ranges from 165 mm to 180 mm.
