Preparing multiple ingredients for stir-fries, stews or salads is a task that flies by with the Masters Collection Hyde Park Santoku knife. This asian-style all-purpose knife is perfect for slicing, chopping, mincing and dicing fruits, vegetables, onions, and herbs, as well as for slicing meats. The specially designed handle and streamlined bolster offer the ultimate in control and comfort. Superior balance and strength is provided by a full tang (the solid-piece of steel from the tip through the handle) that extends the entire length of the handle. Forged from one-piece of high carbon, no-stain german steel, the curved blade resists corrosion and holds an extremely sharp, easily maintained edge.
