This popular Twin Pro S 5 1/4 inch hollow-edge santoku can be used threefold: for preparing meat, fish, and also vegetables. The hollow edge prevents food from sticking to the blade and allows for extra-thin cutting. This Sigmaforge knife is forged from a single piece of Henckels's exclusive high-carbon, no-stain steel formula and is Friodur ice hardened for maximum no-stain properties. The triple-riveted Novodur handles are durable, strong, and smooth for excellent control. The super bolster also ensures optimum balance and the laser-controlled edge guarantees a precision cut.
