 The Santoku bōchō (Japanese: 三徳包丁; "three virtues" or "three uses") or Bunka bōchō (文化包丁) is a general-purpose kitchen knife originating in Japan.

What is a santoku knife used for? Almost anything. A Santoku knife is one of the most versatile and commonly used kitchen knives worldwide. Due to their incredible ease of use, a santoku knife can be used for general chopping, cutting and slicing of most ingredients. 

For this reason, you can actually use a Santoku knife on a wide variety of foods which can include:

Chopping vegetables: slicing and chopping vegetables and making decorative cuts for dish presentation. 

Meat: Slicing and making rough cuts on meat due to a shorter and thinner blade, but this knife is not well suited to cutting dense meat with tough cartilage and bone.

Seafood: used most commonly for slicing and chopping seafood (particularly raw fish). 

Over a thousand years of craftsmanship have inspired the final form of the Ginsu Santoku, a stainless steel blade that will stand the test of time. The Santoku features high-quality steel from Japan – a steel with high corrosion resistance and durability. Each blade completes a rigorous quality assurance process, and is tested and retested to ensure it meets the distinction and caliber of GINSU. 


Why is Japanese steel so significant? 

Japanese steel is known for being exceptionally strong. The raw materials found in Japan used for steel making naturally contain a higher carbon content than other areas around the globe, making it the strongest steel in the world. This high level of carbon leads to a harder metal, which can be sharpened to a finer edge. Western high carbon blades are typically softer as they have less than 0.8% carbon. This is why so many people specifically seek out Japanese steel knives for their kitchen!

Are Japanese knives high maintenance?

No, in fact, quite the opposite! Because of the strength of the steel, the blades hold their edge longer, meaning you don't have to sharpen them nearly as often as other knives. As for care and storage, simply hand wash and dry with warm water, and store your Ginsu Katana knives in a countertop knife block, divider drawers, on wall-mounted magnetic strips or in a Saya. Simple as that.
