Curious about our Haarko Santoku knife? They're a wonderful alternative to general-purpose chef knives, with a focus on slicing, dicing, and chopping. Did you know that "Santoku" actually means "three virtues" in Japanese? 

These knives were created in the 1950s as a blend of Western-style chef knives and Japanese Nakiri knives, and they're perfect for all types of cutting. However, Santoku knives are especially effective for slicing fish, cutting vegetables, and handling sticky foods. Plus, they're smaller and more compact than traditional chef knives. Why not give one a try?
