This 7" Granton Edge Santoku Knife is also known as the Japanese Cooks Knife. This uniquely shaped knife is an extremely versatile tool in the kitchen. A great alternative to the standard 8" chef's knife if you want something a bit shorter and with less curve (excellent for vegetables). The fluted edge helps reduce friction for extra thin slicing performance with less sticking. A heavy-duty, affordable, and high performance knife. Makes a great starter knife for a student moving away from home, or for a culinary school student who needs something rugged and affordable.
Yes, this has the same blade as the old Fibrox version, but with a new updated and slightly more ergonomic handle.
