Santoku means "the 3 virtues" (slicing, dicing, mincing) and stands for this knife's high versatility. It is the perfect multi-purpose knife for vegetables, meat and fish. This great universal tool isn't as intimidating as a large chef knife and therefore perfectly suited to initiate you to the great world of Japanese knives.
The blade is made of high-end VG10 steel and is capable of supporting a very precise grind while maintaining its edge much longer than common steels.
The occidental handle is easy to manipulate. It is made of pakka wood, thus very resistant to humidity.
