Santoku Knives & Nakiri Knives

Do you need a knife for general purpose home use or a knife that specialises in vegetable cutting? At Kaz’s Knife and Kitchenware, we can provide you with the perfect Nakiri or Santoku knife in Australia. Meaning “three virtue” or “three usage”, Santoku knives enable users to cut a range of food items, including meats, fish, vegetables and more.

We also offer Nakiri knives that are also used for home purposes. Although a Nakiri knife is similar to a Santoku knife, the shape of a Nakiri blade is rectangular. In addition, while most traditional Japanese Nakiri knives are a single-edge blade, our Jikko Damascus Nakiri is a double-edge blade. Both knives are widely considered to be a suitable choice for your first knife.

What is a Santoku Knife?

A Japanese Santoku knife evolved from the traditional Japanese vegetable knife, featuring a straight edge with a narrow sheepsfoot blade.

What is a Santoku Knife Used For?

Santoku knives are ideal for mincing, dicing and slicing tasks. They’re often used to cut meat, slice cheese, chop or dice fruits, mince herbs, and scoop food off a cutting board.

Is a Santoku Knife a Good Knife?

A Santoku knife set is a great choice for slicing, dicing and chopping almost any sort of food. The super sharp blade ensures excellent versatility and precision, allowing users to do everything from filleting a fish to chopping an onion.
