This santoku knife is precision-forged form a single piece of high-carbon German Steel, then heat tempered and hand-ground for maximum sharpness. The straight, slender blade is designed to easily slice through tough foods and has just the right amount of rock for chopping herbs or mincing onions. A full-tang handle provides a balanced, comfortable grip, and an etched Babish logo on the butt caps things off nicely. It’s a kitchen workhorse that’ll have you galloping through piles of veggies and tough cuts of meat.
Excess heat and detergent from automatic dishwashers can damage or stain the blades, so dishwashers are not recommended. Do not allow blades to soak in water. Do not allow food to remain on blade after use, as this may cause stains. In most cases, persistent stains can be easily removed with a standard stainless steel cleanser & polish. Use a sharpener and honing rod between uses to keep knives sharp. It’s recommended to use a whetstone or have your knives professionally sharpened once or twice a year. (See more sharpening instructions below.) To preserve sharp edges, use knives on a wood or soft plastic cutting board. Hard surfaces such as countertops, dinner plates, or glass cutting boards will dull blades. Knives are not made to cut bones, frozen foods, or other hard objects. Love this knife and it will love you back. Use extreme caution to protect against injury. These knives are extremely sharp. I’m not kidding, I seriously mangled my finger with this knife when we were shooting promo videos, and I kinda-sorta know what I’m doing. Never use a knife as a can opener, pry bar, screwdriver, wedge, or hand tool. Never handle a knife by the blade. Keep sharp edges pointed away from you when laying a knife down. Never attempt to catch a falling knife. Keep all knives away from children. Store properly in a knife block, roll, or other safe place.
