Known as one of the world's most popular knife styles, Messermeister's Mu Bamboo 6.5" Santoku Knife (a.k.a. a Japanese Chef Knife) is truly where East meets West in one versatile design. Allowing for more precise cuts and slices in meat and fish, the broad, wide blade features an elongated taper and thinner spine than most French or German style Chef knives. Its predominately straight cutting edge curves gently upwards at the tip, providing an extra wide surface for quickly transferring chopped, diced, and minced vegetables from the cutting board to the pot or bowl. Razor sharp and expertly balanced, you'll be reaching for this exquisite knife daily. Also available with a linen textured resin handle in an 6.5" Santoku Knife or 6.5" Santoku Dot Knife from Messermeister's Mu Fusion line.
Expertly crafted in Seki, Japan, Messermeister's Mu Bamboo line is where Japanese design meets German craftsmanship. Featuring a fully stamped high carbon, molybdenum vanadium steel blade and impressively sharp 15-degree precision edge, Messermeister's Mu Bamboo exudes a powerful elegance that you will cherish for years to come. In staying with Japanese tradition, the blade is tempered to 58 rockwell—harder than Messermeister's German masterpieces—and maintains the sleek, bolsterless design that you've come to know and love. Capped with an environmentally friendly bamboo handle, these knives marry the best of both cultures, so you truly can have your cake and eat it, too.
