Purchase confidently. We'll pay for your shipping and returns.
Santoku means “three virtues” in Japanese, though it’s unknown whether those virtues are “meat, fish, and vegetables,” “slicing, dicing, and chopping,” or “tip, edge, and heel.” Why can’t it be all of them? This knife is a multi-talented kitchen tool that fills a gap in any cutlery arsenal. Hand scalloped to reduce friction and stickage, crafted from premium nitrogen-treated X50CrMoV15 stainless steel, and fully forged just like our best-selling 8” Chef Knife, our Santoku Knife will bolster the virtuousness of your knife block.
Shipping, Warranty & Returns

This product is covered under our limited lifetime warranty. Personalized knives cannot be returned, but are covered under the warranty. Pre-orders ship on date listed.

  • Why This Knife?
    When we say our knives are full tang and fully forged, we mean it. This means all Made In knives are made from one solid piece of stainless steel — from the tip through the hilt — and cut through anything. All that our competitors' knives cut? Corners. By welding together two pieces of metal rather than using one intact piece, our competition can cheaply produce a knife that looks full tang and fully forged but doesn't act or age like it.

    You asked for it, we made it: The Santoku. Santoku knives aren’t meant to replace chef knives, but rather to complement them. Santokus are multi-purpose kitchen knives that excel at precision cuts and chopping due to their shorter length and flat cutting edge.
    • Our knives are produced in Thiers, France.
    • Our knives should not be put in the dishwasher.
    • Non-engraved knives can be returned within 45 days.
    • Pre-orders ship on date listed (unless engraved)
    • Engraved knives ship in 2 weeks.
    • Due to our engraving process, gift notes and overnight shipping are unavailable for engraved knives.

    This was the sharpest out of the box knife I have ever had. Seriously, be careful. Nice feel in hand. Nice quality.

    Brian F.

    Liked the first one I purchased so much that I bought a second.


    The weight is perfect, it can cut through anything, and I love that it came with a band aid.

    Sarah P.

    I knew I loved this knife, but when my husband, who is a persnickety knife person, praised it, I knew it was great! It’s sharp and a good weight.
