The Santoku, an Asian-inspired knife, is the ideal kitchen companion for meal preparation. Equipped with a comfortable handle suitable for right and left-handed individuals, the Shun Sora 5.5-inch Hollow-Ground Santoku makes trimming vegetables, cutting fruits and chopping various ingredients enjoyable and efficient. The hollow-ground indentations reduce friction while cutting so the blade glides smoothly through food, which is then released more easily from the blade. Sora uses Shun’s proprietary Composite Blade technology to bring together a premium VG10 cutting edge with a Japanese 420J stainless steel blade upper. This technology puts high-performance material on the cutting edge where it’s needed. The handle is made of a textured PP/TPE polymer blend that’s easy to grip and easy to clean, while also providing a contemporary appearance to the knife. Shun kitchen knives are must-have items for home kitchen or professional chef.
