The name means "three benefits" in Japanese, and you'll find at least that many good uses for this sturdy knife called the Hollow Edge Santoku. Used for mincing, dicing and slicing, this all-purpose tool has hollow indentations in the blade that allow food to slide right off without sticking. Part of the Four Star series, the knife is made of high-carbon stainless steel and precision-honed, with a laser-controlled edge, a balanced super-bolster, and a tang that extends to the back of the polypropylene handle, which is permanently bonded for seamless accuracy.

Love my Henckels. Would not buy any other knife set. Have had knives for years and just added this one. Very sharp and cuts like butter...
I love this knife. I have large hands and it fits me perfectly. I use it all the time. It has kept its edge so far, but I have been very good about rinsing it off after I use it. I have not bought a knife in ages because I have great knives already (Sabatier) but I had seen and heard about these with the scalloped edge or whatever it is called and thought I would try it.
This knife is incredibly sharp! I just have to gently move it through vegetables and meats I want to cut. Does slicing and dicing very easily.
I had been wanting a knife of this style for some time and when I saw this J. A. Henckels knife on this sight for a great price, I knew it was the time to buy. The knife is the quality I was expecting as I have several other knives by the same maker. The different blade shape takes a little to get used to but in short time you are working with it like a pro. I think the hollow edge feature has more to do with looks than keeping the stuff you are working on from sticking to the blade but perhaps it actually works better keeping some types of food off the blade than others. The 7" size fit nicely in between the two other kitchen knives that I use routinely. And, as one would expect, the knife came with a perfect cutting edge. I finally sent out my other 3 favorite knives for professional sharpening after using this knife for just a few days when I realized what a truly sharp blade cuts like. I had only been keeping their edge with a steel before each use for years. It's a great chop knife for now until I get a little more used to it. I hold it very forward of the grip with only 2/3 of my hand on the handle and my thumb and forefinger on the sides of the top of the actual blade. I think this helps with lifting the blade off of the cutting surface as the blade has a much flatter profile that the standard chefs knives I've gotten used to and use more of a rocking motion with. All of this means that I really like this knife and look for every opportunity to pull it out of the block and use it. I had to kick an extra 8" chefs knife out of the block to make room for it. If you are serious about your kitchen tools, you shouldn't be disappointed with this knife in any way.
Extra, almost TOO, sharp (and that is saying something for me!) blade. Extremely comfortable handle.

Don't you hate it when you're trying to slice a cooked potato and your knife just smushes it instead? Try using a <i>santoku</i> knife instead. Its blade has specially designed hollow indentations that reduce drag when cutting, so your knife will slice right through. Santokus are also great for cutting soft cheeses, slicing onions, and just about all your everyday chopping tasks.
