7" Santoku Granton Blade Knife
The Swiss Classic 7" Santoku Granton Edge Knife by Victorinox features an ergonomic handle that fits nicely in your hand, as well as a sharp blade that holds its edge.
Victorinox knives all have high carbon, stainless steel blades that are hand finished at Victorinox in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen. Each knife is stamped from a single sheet of metal. The blade is then hardened, tempered, ground, polished, etched and finished. Victorinox uses a special tempering process to produce an edge that can be resharpened over and over again.
The 7" Santoku Knife is designed to cut meat, fish and vegetables. The santoku is similar to a standard chef's knife, with the difference being the straighter blade, which is designed for chopping, rather than rocking.
A granton edge, or "kullenschiff" edge, has hollowed out grooves on the sides of the blade. These grooves fill with the fat and juices of the product being sliced, which allows for thin, even cuts without tearing or shredding the meat. In addition, these grooves prevent meats and vegetables from sticking to the blade as they are chopped.
Blade Length: 7 inches
