Description

This 7-inch hollow edge santoku boasts a precision, fine-edge blade that is honed for long-lasting sharpness. The santoku - Japanese for "three virtues" - excels at three cutting techniques: expertly mince garlic, slice cucumber, and dice onions with this Asian all-rounder. The hollow edge blade has small indentations, known as grantons, which prevent food from sticking while cutting.

High-quality German stainless steel strengthens this durable, Spanish-made knife. With a seamless transition from blade to handle, Classic knives' fully forged construction provides balance as the traditional triple-rivet handles encourage tireless cutting. These satin-finished blades are conveniently dishwasher safe.

  • Professional, satin-finished blade boasts precision cutting and is finely honed for long-lasting sharpness

Henckels CLASSIC 7-inch Hollow Edge Santoku Knife is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 142.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't feel like a value knife This little santoku could be your go-to for smaller fruits and veggies. With its 5" blade, it's easier to handle and the "dimples" help keep food from thinking to the blade. I have several family members that this is the main knife they use because an 8" chef is simply too big. Classic knives are as close as you can get to the knives made in Germany, at a more affordable price. They are forged from German steel and are made in Spain. The three rivet handle means they're perfectly weight, balanced and extremely durable. Guaranteed to last a lifetime!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Asian knife! A Classic 7" Hollow Edge Santoku knife is for an Asian chef knife. It is perfect for a cook who rather likes chopping motion than rocking and gliding knife, this knife is great for mincing, dicing and chopping herbs. It looks great, it feels great in my hand, and it cuts great! This is durable, fully forged construction blade that provides balance and Spanish-made knife. This 7" Asian style Santoku knife is excellent in cutting large food, meat, vegetables and fruits. It is dishwasher safe. Perfect gifting for young chef.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality knife at a reasonable price... I've owned a Zwilling Four Star set for 30 years and decided to get a few Santoku knives to compliment. This knife is well made and reasonably priced. Happy with purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bleh I'm not impressed with this knife at all. The edge is dull compared to other Santoku's I've owned. The cutting quality is poor when compared to some other generic quality Santoku's I've owned... I'm very disappointed. Don't get me wrong - the brand name in and of itself makes this knife awesome but I don't feel it lives up to its cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This knife makes it easy to cut anything This is a great knife for the price! I love how it has the ovals on the sides so that the food doesn't stick and I don't get a bunch of vegetables falling off the blade all at the same time. I love how this knife is made in Spain, unlike most of the other knives in this price range that come from China. The handle is such a beautiful classic look and I would recommend this knife to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from German Steel Great price point for a knife made with German steel. It's manufactured in Spain to keep prices low, but doesn't skimp on quality or performance. I use this for mincing chopping and slicing. The Japanese styling makes it sharper than my traditional German style knife, and the hollow edge prevents food from sticking. Can't live without this knife, my definite favorite kitchen friend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic is great quality at a great price Henckels Classic knives are made in Spain so they have a great price point but you still get all the highlights of specially formulated German Steel, forged bolster and balanced handle. These knives will retain their sharp edge longer, resist corrosion and stay chip and crack free. The hollow pockets on the edge of this chopping Santoku help keep the food from sticking as you slice.

Does this have grantons on both sides? If not, are grantons on the left or right? From the picture I would think left, but wanted to check

Asked by: Grant
There are indentations on both sides.

Is this knife made with the steel alloy X 50 CR MO V-15 ? I bought a 5 inch Henckels santoku several years ago, model number 31170-140, and it was marked with that alloy. This model (31170-141) does not appear to be marked with any alloy number.

Asked by: PhilD
Yes, all our Classic knives are made with the X 50 CR MO V-15 steel alloy.

What's the right way to sharpen this knife? With a 15 degree or 20 degree sharpener?

Asked by: Fernborough
Santoku knives, as well as other Asian blade styles, should be sharpened at 10-12 degrees per side.
