Santoku: A well-rounded knife that can accomplish a lot of cutting tasks. The santoku is the most common knife shape you’ll find in kitchens worldwide, and it excels at slicing, dicing, and mincing. Think of it as a cross between a Gyuto (chef knife) and Nakiri (veg knife). Generally short in length, 160mm-190mm, the santoku is a superb knife if work space is an issue.
