Famous for its indentations along the edge to alleviate food from sticking while slicing, the Santoku Knife is extremely popular among Calphalon's Katana Series. Like a chef's knife, the Santoku is an all-purpose Asian-style knife that's designed to cut meat, vegetables and fish. The definition of Santoku is "three good things", referring to the three main cutting tasks the knife performs: slicing, dicing and mincing. Calphalon Katana Series cutlery features thirty-three layers of stainless steel. This time-honored layering process not only imparts exceptional sharpness, but allows the blade to retain its edge longer for enduring high performance results.
