Helen Chen's Asian Kitchen 6.5-inch Classic Santoku Knife

Arguably, a good knife is the essence of Chinese cooking. The Classic Santoku is an all-purpose knife that traces its roots back to the Japanese kitchen. Helen's Asian Kitchen Santoku knife is made from the highest quality, German-standard stainless steel providing a durable, keen cutting edge that's perfect for slicing boneless meats, filleting fish, butterflying shrimp, cutting vegetables and more. The specially, hand-ground edge is designed to help reduce drag and keep foods from sticking to the blade. The seamless, brushed stainless steel handle washes completely clean and will not absorb any oil, moisture or juices from meat and seafood. Here is a beautiful, high-performance knife that will make cutting truly a pleasure. Use and Care: As with any fine cutlery, we do not recommend washing in the dishwasher. Heat and harsh detergents may pit or discolor the steel over time. Wash the knife by hand in hot soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Store in a knife block or on a magnetic rack. If storing in a drawer, use a blade guard for safety and to prevent damaging or dulling the blade.
