If a chef's knife just isn't cutting it, try the Hollow-Ground Santoku. Shun took the problems of the chef's knife and solved them. The shorter blade allows for better maneuvering, the slight belly curve enables a better "rocking" cutting motion and a better down-and-forward "push" cutting motion.. Like all knives from the Kanso series, the design focuses on what matters most in a kitchen knife: the steel, the edge, the balance, and the precision. It's the perfect gift for the chef that has everything; an incredible solution to common cooking problems.
