The Swiss Classic 2-Piece Santoku Starter Set by Victorinox features the 7" granton edge santoku knife and a handy parer - each with an ergonomic handle that fits nicely in your hand, as well as a sharp blade that holds its edge.
Victorinox knives all have high carbon, stainless steel blades that are hand finished at Victorinox in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen. Each knife is stamped from a single sheet of metal. The blade is then hardened, tempered, ground, polished, etched and finished. Victorinox uses a special tempering process to produce an edge that can be resharpened over and over again.
The contemporary handles of Swiss Classic knives are inspired by the patented fibrox handles of Victorinox's professional knives, which are the preferred tools of chefs around the world. Swiss Classic handles are NSF approved, with minimal crevices to offer hospitality to bacteria.
The 7" Santoku Knife is designed to cut meat, fish and vegetables. The santoku is similar to a standard chef's knife, with the difference being the straighter blade, which is designed for chopping, rather than rocking.
A granton edge, or "kullenschiff" edge, has hollowed out grooves on the sides of the blade. These grooves fill with the fat and juices of the product being sliced, which allows for thin, even cuts without tearing or shredding the meat. In addition, these grooves prevent meats and vegetables from sticking to the blade as they are chopped.
The pointed tip of this Swiss-made parer is perfectly designed for almost any small task, from hulling strawberries to dicing garlic or chives to deveining shrimp. This versatile parer is also an excellent gardening companion.
Add custom engraving to the blade of the Swiss Classic Santoku knife as a gift or for identification.
