The most versatile and one of the most popular knives that a cook can have is a Japanese multipurpose chefs knife known as a Santoku knife. Santoku is Japanese for three virtues and refers to the way it can chop, dice, and slice ingredients for any preparation, making it a favorite among chefs and cooks everywhere. Preparing delicious meals starts with taking wholesome ingredients and using the best tools such as a high quality chefs knife to make every meal into something special. From dicing, slicing, and chopping fresh produce from a farmers market to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven, even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional. Japanese knives should always be sharpened and honed on premium quality Japanese water stones. A good quality Japanese water stone not only is the best surface to sharpen and maintain the blade of your knife, but it is also the best tool to preserve and take care of the high quality steel that it is made of.
