Take the guesswork out of chopping, slicing, and dicing with Messermeister's San Moritz Elite 5" Kullenschliff Santoku Knife—the Japanese alternative to your standard Chef's Knife. Differing only slightly in its design, the blade mirrors the well balanced functionality of your traditional Chef's Knife, but offers a more subtle blade curvature, and lower tip point—great for mincing, cutting, and boning. The narrow spine and thin blade taper allow for precision, single-moition slices in fish or meat and ensures quick, smooth cuts in fruits, vegetables, and cheeses. The alternating hollows (a.k.a. kullens, grantons, or kullenschliff's) found on either side of the blade, help to reduce drag and prevent food from sticking. Known as the workhorse of the kitchen, you'll be reaching for this blade for 90% of all your cutting tasks. Also available in a 7" Kullenschliff Santoku Knife.
