The Asian Precision knife collection by Messermeister provides the perfection of knife making with professional quality and great value. They’re manufactured from high-carbon, high chromium 440A stanless steel alloy, tempered and flat-ground to a razor-sharp edge within the renowned cutlery capital of Seki, Japan. The resin-laminated paper, Pakkawood, handles are compression riveted to the full tang that includes both Eastern and Western blade shapes for any style of cooking. The Messermeister Asian Precision 7.1/4″ Kullenschliff Santoku Knife, sometimes called a Japanese Chefs Knife, is a wide blade knife with an overall thinner spine and taper than a French or German style Chefs Knife. The thin taper (or blade thickness) is lengthened to give it maximum precision when slicing. The 7″ Santoku Knife is without doubt one of the worlds hottest knives. The spine runs parallel to the moderately flat cutting edge, which has a bolsterless heel and only curves near the tip to create a broad bladed knife identical in shape to a cleaver. The alternating kullenschliffs (a.k.a. kullens, hollows or grantons) on each and every side of the knife reduce drag and prevent items from sticking to the blade.
