Glestain Santoku 170mm (2 different Blade Widths)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

Glestain knives are easily recognizable due to their distinctive design and styling, which is unlike other ‘ordinary’ knives: The unique rectangular-shaped dimples that are ground in to one side of the blade, the pleasant balance and weight of the knife and the secure grip provided by the comfortable handles.

The blade of Glestain knife is made from a special stainless steel called ACUTO440 (HRc. 59) and features unique dimples, which provide extra cutting performance and reduce the likelihood of food sticking to the blade.

This knife has comfortable black pakka wood handle and a stainless steel bolster, which provides good blade balance and a fine grip.

The tall blade and rounded nose / tip of the Santoku make it a versatile knife that is well suited to cutting meat, fish, or vegetables; Hence it’s name, which literally means “Three-purpose”. The Santoku is often recommended as a multi-purpose kitchen knife.

    Very useful knife

    The idea that the hollows in the knife prevent the cut material from sticking to the knife actually works brilliantly. In addition, the knife is very sharp. And for me as a left-hander, it's great to have found a supplier that takes this into account. Delivery to Germany also went smoothly and at fair shipping costs.

    Great Knife

    This is my first nice knife purchase, and after a few weeks of using it, I am really happy with it. Great balance and weight, like the look and it cuts very well.

    Universal and realy non sticky

    I chose this knife for its multi purpose abilities and the special design of the dimples, supposed to be actually efficient. I'm not disapointed. Mission 100% accomplished. The dimples actually works in most cases, oposite to other brands. As soon as I recieved it, it became my most oftenly used knife, over a choice of more than 30 models available in my kitchen! Only one thing: its size can feel a little small sometimes. In that case, a Glestain gyuto should be the right choice I suppose.
