Do not be fooled into thinking that these are just another one of those ‘one piece of metal’ mass produced knives that can be found all over the Globe. The sophisticated laminated stainless steel blades surround a cutting core of Molybdenum Vanadium (please not the Boning knife is made of a single piece of Molybdenum Vanadium). The 18/8 stainless steel hollow handle does not feature any holes or cavities which is an extremely important and fundamental hygiene consideration. A perfect range of light, well balanced knives. This range is popular amongst people who do not like a heavy knife or suffer from weak wrists. This medium sized laminated preparation knife is the perfect ‘all-rounder’. The Santoku is the Japanese multi-purpose knife and is suitable for vegetables, boneless meats, fish and herbs. It is also great on larger vegetables, for example butternut squash and celeriac due to its deep blade.
