Definition of the noun Santoku

What does Santoku mean as a name of something?


  1. A Japanese knife for general culinary usage


The Santoku bōchō or Bunka bōchō is a general-purpose kitchen knife originating in Japan. Its blade is typically between 13 and 20 centimetres long, and has a flat edge and a sheepsfoot blade that curves in an angle approaching 60 degrees at the point. The top of the Santoku's handle is in line with the top of the blade. The word refers to the three cutting tasks which the knife performs well: slicing, dicing, and mincing. The Santoku's blade and handle are designed to work in harmony by matching the blade's width/weight to the weight of blade tang and handle, and the original Japanese Santoku is considered a well-balanced knife.
