New England Cutlery® 5” Santoku Knife is extremely efficient for slicing and chopping a full range of vegetables, meats, and poultry. This wider blade makes it easier to cut through larger or thicker foods, such as potatoes or jicama. The extra-wide blade also makes it easy to scoop up prepared foods for quick transfer to the cooking pot or pan.
The strength and density of ceramic or zirconium oxide allow grinding to microscopic precision. Ceramic blade is totally impervious to acids, juices, oils, salts or other elements. It will never rust. Lightweight, extremely balanced in hand, the ergonomic handle reduces fatigue during repetitive cuttings. Easy maintenance, the ceramic does not absorb food elements and thus requires just a quick rinse and wipe with a kitchen towel. Hand washing is recommended.
