"There may be many kitchen flowers in one's life ... but only one rose" - and this is it, one hewn from wood and steel.
With a whorl of wooden 'petals' decorating the top of the handle and Rosewood making up the rest of the rounded rectangular grip on this traditional Japanese styled Santoku, the effect is one of balance and natural beauty.
Lightweight and easy to use, this knife is comfortable to hold and is well designed for cooks who like a longer handle or grip on their knife.
The N690 Stainless Steel blade itself is designed for mincing, slicing and dicing of everything from meats to cheeses and vegetables - and it has the added advantage that it is also wide enough to facilitate easy scopping of everything chopped into a nearby bowl or pot.
Santokus are very useful knives in the kitchen and are the interchangeable Japanese equivalent of the Western French Chef's knife. It can do just about anything. Once you use one, you will soon understand why they are so popular.
The Rosetta Long Handled Traditional Santoku
All handcrafted knives need to be cleaned and oiled after use to maintain the blade and handle in good condition.
