What are the characteristics of Japanese knives?

Japanese knives are one of the most unique types of kitchen accessories you will find in a knife set. Depending on the type of fish you want to cut, there is a specific Japanese knife with particular characteristics.

These are the most common and widely used by professional chefs and Japanese cuisine enthusiasts:
 

  • Western-style knives: Manufactured with a double bevel to facilitate cutting on both sides of the V-shaped blade. Within this category, you will find popular knives such as Santoku, Petty, Nakiri, and Gyuto, among others.
  • Japanese-style knives: Most manufacturers of these models include only one bevel. However, it is true that in recent years they have adapted to Western-style knives. The most well-known ones are Deba, Yanagiba, and Usuba.

What is the Santoku knife used for?

The Arcos Santoku knife is the most popular within the collection of Japanese knives. It is a highly versatile cutting tool as it performs multiple functions: slicing, dicing, and chopping. It is perfect for cutting all kinds of foods, from meats to fish and vegetables.

What is the blade like on the Santoku knife?

The Santoku knife is one of the most versatile Japanese knives. The blade of this knife typically ranges from 13 to 20 cm in length.

Unlike chef's knives, this knife is much thinner, shorter, and lighter. However, it retains the essence of Western-style knives with a double bevel.

To get the most out of this knife, we recommend sharpening it with honing steels or specific sharpeners. At Arcos, we have a wide selection of these types of kitchen accessories, as well as cutting boards. Additionally, you can conveniently store and transport them, if necessary, in knife bags designed for these models.
