I’ve just moved into my first apartment and am currently fitting out my kitchen toolset. I had originally planned on getting a Western style Chef’s Knife, but at the last moment decided to get this Santoku knife. This knife is an absolute game changer! Chopping vegetables has never felt so satisfying and it really adds a level of enjoyment to cooking that I didn’t think previously possible. Furthermore the shipping (at least to Perth, Australia) was lightning fast! 7 days and the knife was at my doorstep
This is my first Japanese knife so I was Skeptical of why I even needed a Japanese knife as a home cook. My girlfriend pushed me to buy one after making dinner and it bought this. This knife is so gorgeous that i was scared to use it at first, but everything about it was amazing. The little dips in the knife, which I thought were for design actually stop food from sticking which is really convenient for me as someone who loves cooking Indian. Onions, garlic, and cucumbers are now nothing to me. The base of the knife is also wide enough to pick up and drop onions using the knife which is also really useful. Overall: worth the buy. I can’t go back
The knife is so light and easy to use. I enjoy cooking at home every day with it, easily going through vegetables and chicken. I have more confidence in my cooking when using the knife. The shipping was much quicker than I'd have thought and it arrived here perfectly. Thank you JapaneseChefsKnife for this amazing service!
This knife was incredibly sharp out of the box and has been the knife I use the most. I’ve only ever used western style handles but the octagonal handle felt very comfortable in my hand. It’s an amazing knife.
Really well made knife for the price and came with a great out of the box sharpness. Shipped to New Zealand in one week which I thought was amazing!
