Yaxell Zen Santoku Knife - 12.5cm

£99 £109

This multipurpose Japanese small Santoku knife is extremely easy to use and accomplishes a wide variety of tasks with ease. Extremely agile and finely balanced, it's perfect for finely slicing meat or vegetables while the point allows you to accurately dice onions, shallots or chilies. The deep blade has the strength and power to cut through tougher vegetables while the depth of the blade combined with its straight cutting edge makes the knife simple and instinctive to handle. 

Santoku knives are lighter and sharper than a traditional Chef's knife due to the thinness of the blade. These knives are particularly suited to the preparation of vegetables and are ideal for devotees of Asian and Fusion cuisines. Their compact size and superb sharpness make them indispensable in a well-equipped kitchen

Yaxell Zen knives are made by skilled craftsmen in Seki, the famous Japanese city of blades where legendary Samurai swords have been produced for over 700 years. Zen knives continue this tradition of fine workmanship. Each one is made from 37 layers of folded Damascus steel with a core of VG10 stainless steel. The blade features a hammered finish which gives the Zen line it's point of difference and stands out from the rest.

Always take care when using sharp knives. Cut away from the body and always store knives safely in a block or with a sheath to cover the blade if kept in a drawer. Make sure your knife is sharp - a blunt knife requires more pressure to cut and is more likely to slip. Sharpen and hone on a whetstone.
